* How to bruise the stalk: Take a stalk of Lemongrass and remove the tip of the root end with a sharp knife, cut a piece two inches up from the cut end giving yourself a two inch long section, peel off the dried outer layer from the section and crush that lightly with a mortar and pestle to release the oils.
