Alecost (Tanacetum balsamita)
Alecost can be eaten with eggs, seafood, veal, pork, beef, lamb, chicken, salad greens, summer fruit. Add small quantities to salads, soups, root vegetables, potatoes, beans, poultry and meat based stuffings. A hardy herbaceous perennial. Happiest planted in well drained soil in sun or partial shade.
Angelica ( Angelica archangelica)
We love angelica, it gives such lively foliage and height. If you add it to rhubarb or gooseberry dishes, it will help take some of the ‘sourness’ away. Try it also with apples, plums, lemons and strawberries. It is almost a perennial – but the old plants will die off after seeding and young plants will take roughly a year before they make much growth. Happiest planted in a damp shady position.
