Lovage is a wonderful plant that gets quite large. It’s a herb and you can pick the leaves to add to your dinners fresh. Lovage has a strong flavour, not unlike celery, but stronger than that. It’s great in salads with other greens, it really adds a zing. You can use it in soups and stews as well.
Since the plant grows so large, you can get a great harvest! If you like, snip the leaves into smaller pieces and then add them to a clean mason jar. Just put the seal and ring on top and tuck the jar away in your pantry. Then, whenever you feel like it, add a pinch or three to whatever is cooking on the stove.
You can also dry the leaves whole, then follow the same instructions for storage. Be sure the leaves are fully dry before storing. Then use them whenever you like.
