Lettuce wraps, sugarcane skewers, and add-ins such as lemongrass make tasty bundles bursting with the flavors of Southeast Asia. Sugarcane adds a hint of sweetness and an authentic touch, but wooden skewers make a fine stand-in -- just soak them in water for 20 minutes before using.
To make Lemongrass Syrup: In a saucepan over medium heat, dissolve 1 cup of granulated sugar into 1 cup of water. Cool to room temperature, and pour the syrup into a blender with 4 stalks of lemongrass. Blend the mixture and strain through chinois or cheese cloth. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
