Look at the recipe above. How could it be simpler?

Add the lime leaves and lemongrass in at the beginning, with the galangal or ginger and remove prior to serving.

Lemon grass and Kaffir lime leaves are very difficult to find here (yes, there is an Asian market in Dubuque, but they don't have lemon grass consistently, and I've never seen Kaffir lime leaves). One of these days I'll find a source for either plant (I used to grow my own of both, but since moving here cannot find either). SOOO ... I use lemon and lime skin in the winter, and in the summer I use either that or lemon balm or lemon verbena from the garden. It isn't the same, but you live with what you have.

There is an asian store on Lindale ave in Bloomington. They have all needed ingredients. Actually I'm going there today, I hope.

Sorry, don't know what to tll you. I went there yesterday. They had everything, the only thing they keep kefir-lime leaves in the freezer, which is really not a problem. Made soup last night, everybody had seconds and thirds. I knew it was going to happen, so I did not even bothered making anything else. Yum.

Lyndale! Near Bachman's?

Fresh kaffir lime leaves can be hard to find, as they were quarantined due to some disease, I think. It's hard to find them here. Luckily I have a bunch in the freezer.
