           Lemongrass
 
  Though common throughout southeast Asia, lemongrass is featured most
  prominently in the cuisine of Thailand, where it may be found growing
  in practically every house. It contains citral, the same substance
  found in the zest of a lemon, and 1 T of chopped fresh lemongrass has
  about the same "sour power" as an equal amount of minced lemon peel.
  Fresh lemongrass is increasingly available at Asian markets
  throughout the United States. It is easy to grow your own, either in
  the garden or as a houseplant. Stand a stalk in water until it starts
  sending out roots, pot it and place the plant in a sunny spot.    The
  entire stalk is useful. Aside from the instructions of specific
  recipes, cut a 6" section off the root end, remove the outer few
  layers from this lower part, chop the inner fiber and saute to make a
  crisp topping for chicken or to put into salads and sauces. The
  tougher outer layers can be chopped and added to marinades for
  chicken or pork, or mashed and brewed for tea. The top of the stalk
  can be bundled and added to stock or used as a flavoring for hot and
  sour soup.
