We were recently asked the question, can you make fresh herbs like the Gourmet Herb range available from the shops. The Answer .... ABSOLUTELY!!! I used to buy the pre blitzed lemongrass until I read what else was in it - check the label guys its not just lemongrass. So today I took 4 lemongrass stalks, chopped them into 5 cm pieces, popped them in the bowl and chopped on Speed 5 for about 1 minute. Then I added some oil and water (just enough so that the lemongrass isn't getting stuck to the side of the bowl) and blitzed on Speed 9 for about 1 minute and Speed 7 for 1 minute. Until I got the consistency I was looking for. Spooned into ice cube tray to always have fresh lemongrass on hand.
The same principal works for any fresh herb combination you want to make. Fresh herbs - oil - bit of water blitz then freeze. Eb x
