Has anyone tried using sweet cicely to sweeten fruit for cooking?  I've read about it, and like the idea of reducing the sugar needed, as I'm diabetic  :cry: I believe it's especially good with rhubarb?

Sweet Cicley tastes exactly like liquorice. Sweetness and flavour. I've not tried it yet as my rhubarb hasn't come back from dying back in June (it didn't last year either, that's why i'm going to divide it up) and I only bought the sweet cicley plant in June.
wistfully hoping to one day be mostly organic gardener in North London.

Jekka says 2-4 tablespoons dried sweet cecely or handful offresh leaves with lemon balm into the boiling water in which the fruit is to be boiled,she says this wil reduce the sugar needed.I personally find the aniseed flavour off putting but to others that could be a bonus.
 I`m still trying to remove it from our garden,I`ve found it`s invasive even in shady clay..looks pretty though.

That's because it likes shade and moistness. Mine is a very small clump with full sun and clay soil which dries out pretty well in the summer.

We inherited the sweet cecily(and lemon balm)with the garden it still comes up in the lawn,flower beds,between paving stones,in a veg bed that had been double dug then raised,in sun,in shade ond in regularly flooded areas-I would keep an eye on any little clump in the sun if I were you.
  Funny how a nice plant to one person is a weed to others,and visa versa.
