    Lemon Balm. Adds a gentle lemon zest flavor to foods. Use it just as you would a lemon in cooking with fish, poultry and vegetable recipes. The leaves can also be used in fruit deserts, ice cream, custard and pastry. In beverages, lemon balm works well in hot or cold tea, punch or a tangy lemonade. You can use the leaves fresh or dried.
