Lovage

Levisticum officinale

The word 'Lovage' comes from 'love-ache', 'ache' being a medieval name for parsley. This is a perennial herb with tall, smooth stems with dark green pinnate leaves, their scent reminiscent of strong celery and parsley, and yellow-green flowers in Summer. The leaves can be used in salads or as a seasoning in broths. Even the roots can be used grated in salads. Use the seeds as you would fennel seeds.
