My climate is southern Australia which is Mediterranean (similar to
California). At the moment my bison grass is in pots but doing fine.
It dies down in the winter (about +15C) but picks up in spring.
Doesn't seem to be as aromatic as the dried grass I got from the U.S.
I am happy with my own Zubrowka vodka though.
Kaffir lime is a wild SE Asian lime. Normally the leaves are used in
Vietnamese cooking. The fruit is very wrinkly. Compare the peel to
other citrus to see if is similar. Citrus leaves are added to citrus
liqueurs as are citrus blossom.
Lemon grass is great as is lemon verbena and lemon balm. All contain
Galangal is used in many old elixir recipes.
