Someone gave me a lovage plant two years ago. I had to divide it this year because it had gotten so big. I got 15 divisions from the one plant plus the one division I left in the ground. The gardener gave me the plant as a substitute for celery. I was hoping that my rabbits would eat it, but no such luck with the rabbits.

The lovage was extremely easy to grow. It's a perennial. The taste is similar to celery, but different. I just don't know what to do with it cooking wise. I'll bring the divisions to my garden clubs plant sale, but I'm hoping that someone will have some cooking suggestions. I hate to throw the plant out, but if I don't find a use for it, it's gone.

I use my lovage in soups and I even use it in stuffing/dressing for turkey and chicken. I find it has a perfumed smell to it more than celery. If you use celery in a recipe you can basically use lovage in its place. Hope this helps
