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.
