What is this Stuff? LOVAGE
Lovage is an vibrant herb that has a flavor similar to celery. In fact, it's actually a cousin. Not only is it high in Vitamin C, but it also works very well as a salt substitute. Use a small amount anywhere celery would be appreciated. I added this refreshing herb to my latest veloute sauce and it was dish. I found some great recipes here. Lovage has a couple of aliases such as "éleri bâtard (french for false celery)" and smallage. There are two warnings attached to this herb; A little goes a long way, and it might make you fall in love as it has a history of being added to love potions....use it very, very carefully.
