Lemon Verbena

Also known as Aloysia citrodora.

“Lemon verbena leaves are used to add a lemony flavor to fish and poultry dishes, vegetable marinades, salad dressings, jams, puddings, and beverages. It also is used to make herbal teas, or added to standard tea in place of actual lemon (as is common with Moroccan tea). It can also be used to make a sorbet. In addition, it has anti-Candida albicans activity”

A bunch of this stuff was harvest around the co-op property a few weeks ago and now it's all drying out around our houses. Smells great and makes for a delicious before bed tea.
