SHOES to SOUSE >  Smallage

 

Philodendron Leaf

SMALLAGE

The wild form of celery is known as smallage. It has a bitter taste, and the stalks are more stringy than our cultivated celery.

Smallage was used by the ancient Chinese as a medicine, and the Greeks and Romans used it as a seasoning.

It was in the 17th and 18th centuries that celery was developed by breeding the bitterness out of smallage.
