Sweet cicely (Myrrhis odorata) is an herb of the parsley family also known as fern-leaved chervil and garden myrrh. The leaves have a sweet anise taste, and some even describe the leaves as tasting like they have been sprinkled with powdered sugar!
Sweet cicely is not much used as a pot herb anymore, but the seeds are still used in the liqueur Chartreuse. The leaves are good in salads, dressings, stews, and in desserts, especially those that contain tart fruits. The cooked root is sliced and served cold in salads or by itself with oil and vinegar.
