Oh Angelica! You can call it also Arctic Angelica and Angelica archangelica. It is commonly known as garden angelica, wild celery, angelic herb and angelic root. Angelica is a perennial or biennial herb that grows more than 2 meters. You can find it near all kinds of streams because it likes fertile and moist soil.

In Iceland just everyone loves angelica. This amazing herb is a delicacy for people and for sheep, which love to sneak it too. There are not so many gin distilleries on the island (angelica is almost always its aromatic component), but it has a number of culinary uses. For example Icelanders candy the stems. The candied angelica can be eaten as a candy or used for decorative purposes on desserts and cakes. Such a fantastic, headiness aroma can’t be wasted, so there is no other way but to run to your kitchen kingdom and start to prepare something delicious.

So now indulge yourselves with our delightful angelica jam!
