MAKES 1 CUP
The recipe for this exotic syrup came to us from the Savory restaurant in New York City.
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 lemongrass stalks (core only), sliced
1. Combine sugar, water, and sliced lemongrass core in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring to dissolve sugar.
2. Remove from heat and cool. Fill a jar with a few lemongrass stalks. Strain syrup into jar. Cover and keep in the refrigerator.
