DESCRIPTION AND CULTURE: Angelica is a biennial plant in the Apiacea and flowers in a stately umbel in the second year. It prefers damp places and gets 4-6’ tall in the second year when flowering.
PART USED: The root harvested in the fall of the first year or spring of the second year holds potent aromatics. I also like to use the above ground or herb portion, which has the same qualities only not as strong. The stems are hollow and can be candied, as it was used in the 1800’s as an after dinner digestif. The seeds can be used as well, but they are very potent!
FUNCTION: Mainly used as a digestif, with it’s strong aromatic qualities.
