It's growing like a weed, and has a wonderful smell just wondering what I can use it for in the kitchen?
Make jelly. I can't remember the recipe exactly, but it's something along the lines of:
- juice and zest a couple of lemons
- steep lemonbalm and lemon zest in hot water to extract the flavour
- mix infusion and lemon juice together
- sweeten to taste
- add gelatine
- pour into suitable vessels, chill to set
The lemonbalm gives you a different kind of lemonyness than lemons alone do, so the resulting jelly has a deeper flavour.
