What to do with Lovage??

I have a huge lovage plant in my herb bed that comes up every year.  It is so big and healthy I hate to pull it, but I have no idea how to use/cook with it.  I think I planted it because someone told me it was a good companion plant.  Any ideas??

Re: What to do with Lovage??

Lovage was frequently used love potions, although it might not help you find love you can use the lovage leaves for celery leaves or chopped celery in many recipes. Make certain that the leaves were picked before the  lovage flowers. Lovage has a strong flavor so use less that you would with celery.

You can also use the stems of the lovage plant as straws for a Bloody (Virgin) Many. Simply wash thoroughly and clip the ends. For a celery taste.
