You discard the outer, tougher casing of the leaves, farmer & only use the white softer part in the centre.


That's the part you freeze, too ... Chopped up very fine & frozen in small quantities.

@msolga,
Ok, Ill do that. I thought I huked the outer leaves but maybe I should have removed even more. The grass grows in clumps like marsh grasses so It wont be hard to get a good thick pannicle and strip it to the center.

Do they make lemon grass ice cream? we havent fired our ole ice cream maker up this year cause we missed peach season entirely.

@farmerman,
I buy powdered coconut milk from bulk foods.com. I just replenished my stock of it last month for making agar agar gelatin fruit salad and for use with curries. I also like using the powdered coconut milk because you can adjust the amount to suit your tastes as far as the strength of the coconut flavor goes. You just mix it with water like powdered cow's milk.

If you're interested, here's the page for the item:

Coconut Milk Powder


And, here's the page on the nutritional value and ingredients of it:

@farmerman,
i've been growing green onions for chives. they've been growing healthy for the past couple of months and are now about 2 feet high by 3/4 inch thick (each leaf). when i cut off the hollow leaves for chives, a clear, gooey liquid oozes from the hollow center of the leaf. is this normal or unhealthy? it's very slimy but hasn't seemed to kill us yet.

@8675309,
onions are commercially grown in muck soils and they often ooze when the tops are cut . You are just seing the plnts normal growth and fluids , so I wouldnt worry unless the plnt smells like its rotting (too much moisture can induce rot and molds in onions).
We grow a small kitchen garden near the house with herbs and "bunching" onions that we use for scallions and green onion slices. I also grow garlic and we are about ready to pick this years garlic. (I plant garlic in September and harvest it in June--oterwise it doesnt produce big bulbs)
