The candied stems were once a popular sweet and used to decorate cakes. Chopped leaves may be added to fruit salads, fish dishes and cottage cheese in small amounts.
Add leaves to sour fruit such as rhubarb to neutralize acidity.
Boil the stems with jams to improve the flavor. Remove the stems before canning or freezing. Young stems can be used as a substitute for celery.

An infusion of the leaves can be taken for indigestion. Angelica root is used in digestive tonics to relieve colic, cramps and flatulence. It is also used to ease spasms in bronchitis and asthma.
