A very healthful green to eat when cooked, nettles have a long history of medicinal uses, including treatment of muscle and joint pain. Makes a great ’tisane’ (herb tea) — bright, herbaceous, delicious. They should be handled with care (wear gloves!) when fresh but take very little cooking to shed the sting.
Lemongrass is a culinary herb, often used in Thai food and hot teas. It is used both fresh and dried, and imparts a lemony flavor to dishes. Some studies have shown that Lemongrass tea seems to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and infection-preventing benefits.
Yuzu is a knobby-skinned citrus fruit, with a floral aroma and tangy tart flavor. According to an article in the The New Yorker, “Yuzu is thought to have originated in China, but the fruit is most closely identified with Japan, where it is one of the nation’s essential aromas and flavors. It’s a key ingredient in ponzu sauce, the tangy blend of yuzu juice and soy sauce that often accompanies cold noodles or fried pork cutlets. It also lends zing to highballs, seasons potato chips, and is a favorite flavor for candy.” It can also be ‘staggeringly expensive’ in some areas (like NYC) at $15 to $20 per pound. We are offering it for $20 per five pound bag.
