An herb which is also referred to as Sweet Cicely, Chervil and Myrrh, that is native to western Asia and Europe, but is also grown in many other regions. The hollowed stems grow to three feet tall and the large, light green leaves become feather-shaped in appearance. Cicely has a sweet and mild anise flavor, which improves the taste of different fruits when paired with the acidic fruit flavor. Cicely can be used nicely as a substitute for sugar in sweet dishes. Cicely is also served fresh in salads and is one of the herbs used in a combination blend of herbs known as fine herbs. When dried, Cicely looses most of its distinctive flavor.
