Lemongrass is a type of grass grown and used widely in many tropical regions. It's very common in the Thai, Cambodian and Vietnamese cuisines. It has a mild citrus flavor - hence the name. It's usually used as an herb and flavoring in curries, soups, and curry pastes. It's also popular for tea. Each stalk of lemongrass has several layers, each growing tightly wrapped around its core. The top layers are tough and green; they rather feel like a corn husk's outer layer. When peeled away you find the inner white core of the lemongrass stalk. It's also very tough and difficult to cut, but not nearly so much as the outer layers.
