Lemongrass is used to flavor broths, sauces, and curry pastes in Southeast Asian cuisine. The effervescent flavor compliments stronger herbal flavors, pungent fish sauces, and fiery Thai chilies. Look for fresh lemongrass at your local farmers market or Southeast Asian stores. But, when it is hard to come by use this dried lemongrass instead. Ingredients: Lemongrass.

Love this spice and absolutely love The Spice House!
Wonderful website is an encyclopedia on spices!
I love, love fresh lemongrass but it can be hard to find and sometimes is a bit of a chore to store and prepare. I gave this dried lemongrass a try. It had a good flavor but the thin dried pieces never softened, despite being added to wet recipes that cooked for a considerable time. I found the course pieces very unpleasant to eat. I suppose I could put the pieces in a sachet or grind them in a mortar first but I honestly I just wanted an easy way to add lemongrass that didn't require any additional prep. Personally I won't be purchasing this product again. That doesn't mean it won't work for you, but it doesn't for me. That being said, I love the Spice House, their individual and blended spices, the fast shipping and great customer service. I continue to be a fan : )
It's great and convenient to keep around
The lemongrass was very fresh. It smelled amazing and made wonderful tea. It was packaged perfectly. Will buy from Spice House again.
I ordered flatpacks of several spices, one of which was Lemon grass. I love the packaging and the envelope was full of lemongrass. Plus, shipping is free if you order flatpacks. I surely will be ordering again.
