Angelica is a herb that is fairly well known in Northern Europe. The Vikings relied on its high Vitamin C content to keep away scurvy.  The angelica that grows on the edge of an arctic area like South Greenland, has a unique and delicate flavour that is found nowhere else in the world as a result of their special growing conditions.

In Greenland, the fresh shoots of Angelica are picked during the two warmest summer months. Then they are air-dried and eventually sent to Denmark where they are packaged.
