Macerone

Botanical name: Alexanders

Smyrnium olusatrum è un’aromatica biennale*, nativa del bacino del Mediterraneo.

Also known as "celery", this umbrella tree grows wild along the seashores and had great historical significance as a culinary herb: leaves, stems, roots and crowns flower buds appear as characteristic ingredients of medieval recipes.

The entire plant is edible. The young stems can for example be stews and taste similar to asparagus, while the leaves can be eaten raw in salads or used to flavour stews.

* Although this variety is classified as a biennial, the plant is able to self-reproduce by seed.
