Lemongrass

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
