We love this herb's unique aroma - herbal, citrusy, and floral all together - and the marvelous dessert tisane or herbal infusion that is perfect sipping on a crisp spring evening. More ideas below - be looking for it at your local greenmarket...We usually use lemon verbena in desserts, like this plum sorbet with lemon verbena-flavored cream from my (Faith's) other blog. But this Verbena Brined Salmon sounds delicious and special.
We also like the idea of this Lemon Verbena Oil to be drizzled over vegetables or fish.
And of course you can't go wrong with a simple syrup of lemon verbena, sugar and water, mixed up with some soda and a little sweet vermouth.
Do you like to cook with lemon verbena? If so, how do you use it?
