Lemongrass is easy to use; just cut off the root end and the thin straggly bits at the other end. Peel off the outer layer and keep peeling until you get to a nice fresh-looking layer. Lay it on the counter and, with the blunt side of your knife, whack the length of stalk until it starts to break apart and release its aroma. Chop into 1-inch pieces and use for cooking. Lemongrass is not usually eaten, because it is so tough. However, by straining it out, you still have its aroma and taste.
