Sweet cicely at White Moss House, Grasmere

Sweet cicely is a great herb , and it's looking extra good this year. Here is a photo taken this morning from our kitchen door looking into the Whitemoss herb garden.

It's a very pretty herb, with its masses of white flowers.Its main use for us it as a sweetener in rhubarb, gooseberry and other fruit desserts. If you chop up sweet cicely leaves and add them to the fruit, you can halve the amount of sugar you use. Nature's own low calorie sweetener!
