Freezing lemongrass... everything in my freezer smells like lemongrass. How to avoid it?
I froze fresh lemongrass stalks inside a quart Ziploc bag. I though these bags were more impermeable to smell. But now everything I put in my freezer ends up having a intense lemongrass smell.
How to avoid this?
Shall I put one bag inside another?
Will this be enough?
Are there better alternatives?
Or is a plastic container the only possible way to contain smells?

You reminded me of this technique for freezing herbs in ice water. I wonder if this would help contain the fragrance (storing the iced versions in a heavy plastic bag, of course).
