Home Farm Herbery is warm enough to grow Lemon Verbena and it is a large and bushy perennial shrub. It is deciduous and highly scented, with a strong citrus aroma that can be noticed most strongly in the early evening. Lemon verbena is known for its ability to "calm tension, refresh and relax.
These dried leaves make an excellent tea, but because it can be so relaxing, it is recommended to not drink and drive. Lemon verbena matches perfectly with poultry and seafood. For poultry, try rubbing a little into the cavity or add a tbsp. to poultry seasoning for some extra zing. Sprinkle on seafood or add to a marinade for a bright vibrant flavor. Additionally, lemon verbena pairs nicely with fatty meats like pork or duck. Try adding some to your next soup or stew.
Also adds great flavor desserts, drinks and salads. You can use lemon verbena in place of lemon zest in recipes. Bury 6 lemon verbena leaves in a cup of sugar that has been placed in a covered jar or container. Use this sugar to top muffins, fruit, or sprinkle on the top of muffin batter before baking.
