When preparing Thai food, lemongrass is a must. And the best way to get and prepare lemongrass is by following the simple steps below:
- Visit a Thai or Asian grocery store and find the freshest lemongrass which should be among the other fresh produce. Usually, they’re in stalks of two or three.
- Stay away from lemongrass stalks that are too loose, brown and crusty. This means that the lemongrass stalks are old and are stripped already of nutritious value.
- The best lemongrass stalks are those that have a lemony-green shade close to the lower part of the stalk. The other side of the stalk should also be greenish.
