I purchased 5 lovage plants because the man at the garden center praised its use in potato salad. When I planted them my Polish neighbor, who was surprised to see “Lubczyk” as she had never seen it growing in this country, told me that in Poland they make soup with it. Naturally I did some Internet research to find some recipes. As I always change recipes and improvise as I go, this is what I wound up with. We loved it. Let me warn you…Lovage is a natural diuretic, so if you make this prepare to have your kidneys working overtime!
