Lovage smells and tastes like a mix of celery and parsely, but stronger flavors than both. Lovage is full of vitamins B and C, and tends to help with allergies.
It can be eaten raw or cooked. The leaves are often used in soups, stocks, stews, and salads. Add lovage in with oregano and garlic for an amazing straight from Italy tomato sauce.
The herb is native to Asia, and parts of the Middle East.
