What is "alexanders"?

Alexanders, also known as Smyrnium olusatrum, is an edible perennial herb native to the Mediterranean region. It has glossy, dark green leaves and small yellow flowers arranged in umbels. The stems, leaves, and seeds of the plant are all edible and have a flavor reminiscent of celery or parsley, with a slightly peppery undertone. Alexanders were historically used as a food source in ancient times, and they are still occasionally used in modern cuisine, particularly in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes. The plant is also valued for its ornamental qualities and is sometimes grown in gardens for its attractive foliage and flowers.
