Lemon balm is a suitable herb to use in fish dishes, soups, fruit salads, sauces or winter dishes. Lemon balm can be used both fresh and dried in the kitchen and in both hot and cold dishes. Lemon balm can not be boiled because it does not have the fresh taste anymore.
Use lemon balm to draw tea? Then use leaves that are in the beginning of flowering because they have a stronger taste.
