Candied Alexander Stems

Like a first kiss, it was the sweetness of Alexanders’ stems that got me hooked on their flavour and versatility. Also known as Black Lovage (Smyrnium olusatrum) and evocative of lovage, celery and angelica. Alexanders is one of the plants I cover in my book; Wild Food Foraging in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

These candied stems are lovely as a walking snack, or use them in my moreish Alexander Filo Tarts.
