USES: Lovage is a perennial herb with leaves that look and taste like celery. Leaves may be used sparingly in recipes to add celery flavor. The hollow stalks are not used in cooking.

The seeds may be used in lieu of celery seed in recipes. Make lovage stock to replace meat stocks in recipes. Replaces celery in the following ratios: Use one teaspoon of fresh chopped Lovage leaf to replace each large stalk of celery called for in a recipe. Use 1/2 teaspoon dried Lovage to replace a stalk of celery.

I use about 1/4 to 1/2 the amount of seeds when replacing celery seed in a recipe as Lovage seeds are bigger. You can also grind the seeds and add to salt to make "lovage salt" which is used much as celery salt.

Fresh Lovage leaf marries particularly well with salads calling for blue cheese, cheddar, apples, rhubarb, and toasted walnuts. Flavor combines nicely with tomato dishes and in potato salads.

This is a cold-hardy herb in USDA Zones 5-8. It will grow about three feet tall and wide in your garden. During summer it will send up stalks five or six feet high covered with panicles of white flowers that form seeds in much the same way as dill or anise. Once the seeds dry in late summer they may harvested for use and the stalks cut back.

Amount shipped: Approximately one teaspoon of seed is sent.

PROPAGATION: Seeds may be planted directly into the garden in spring after the ground thaws, or in fall to come up the following spring. Seeds may also be started indoors. Cover seeds lightly with soil and keep moist until they sprout. If started indoors, transplant into the garden when they are three or four inches high after danger of frost has passed. Once established Lovage needs little water. Give Lovage a spot at the back of the herb garden as it is a fairly tall herb. Also a lovely plant near the back of a flower border.

These seeds have been grown without chemicals or pesticides and hand-harvested. You may use them in recipes and/or plant them.
