from my garden
LEMON VERBENA - there is absolutely nothing like the fragrance of lemon verbena leaves. I have a few of these shrubs growing in my garden & yesterday picked a small bunch for my kitchen. I sometimes use it in cooking - I like to line the bottom of a cake pan with the leaves, then pour the mixture over it - it infuses the most delicious lemon through a butter cake. I take the leaves off before icing.
