Lovage is a perennial plant of the carrot family grown more for confectionary purposes than as a vegetable. Like angelica (A. archangelica) , lovage seeds and stems are used in candy-making. Also, the leafstalk and blanched lower portion of the stem are eaten like celery. Lovage imparts a celery-like flavor to soups and stews.
Lovage is best used fresh, but you can freeze the leaves and stems. Blanch a handful of leaves in boiling water VERY quickly then quickly throw into a bowl of ice water for a couple of minutes. Drain, place in plastic freezer bags and freeze. The frozen lovage can be minced and used in cooked dishes.
