Lemon custard using lemon verbena (an herb)

I am crazy about lemon custard and have a wonderful recipe here on La Maison et le Jardin my personal blog.  While scouting around for more uses of lemon and specifically lemon verbena (an herb that grows well in my potager) I found this fantastic looking recipe of Bon Apetite which says, "Often used to make herb tea and liquers in Provence, the fragrant herb lemon verbena gives a nice lift to these rich, silky lemon custards.  Look for fresh lemon verbena at farmers' markets (that'd be us - The Simple Farm)

The recipe for Pots de creme au citron et a la Verveine can be found here.
