After they mentioned lemon verbena on Masterchef a hundred times, I finally decided to buy a plant when we moved to Melbourne two years ago. We made ice cream and tea. Over the first winter i thought the plant had died. It can back and flourished!
Lemon verbena smells and tastes amazing. Dried leaves in hot water for tea. Fantastic ice cream.
Thank you to David Leibovitz for this recipe. It’s a winner.
Go and get yourself a plant.
