Is it nice?

No...loveage...although there may be two spellings of it. It's a herb apparently. Just wondered whether anyone could say whether it's nice or not...

Lovage - a mediterranean herb with a robust flavour similar to celery, used in stuffings, stews soups and with fish. Is it nice? I guess that would depend on whether you like the flavour of celery!

I've used it once or twice to my mind it's nothing special and I can think when I used it last.

Actually, you can use celery leaves instead of lovage & they're a lot cheaper but I'm with you Jac, not something I'd go out of my way for.
Speaking of obscure herbs, when was the last time anyone grew /saw /ate borage. Can't remember what it tastes like, is it a bit like rocket or dandelion leaves?

The best reason for growing it is to put the flowers in your Pimms.

Borage - native to eastern europe, both flower and leaves have a slight cucumber flavour. Hence it affinity to pimms. But agian can't say i'd bother with it

Next Jame5 is going to post asking whether Spotted Dick is nice.

What other oddly or suggestively named foods are there?

Borage oil is also by far the best naturally occuring source of GLA - miles better than Evening Primrose Oil or Starflower Oil....

What does Ivanhoe have to say about all this?
