remember being traded from the West to the East, except perhaps for
saffron.  Anyone know of any others (herb or spice)?

Okay. Sigh. NOT what I meant. Pre-1492. ie: From Europe to the Middle  
East, India or eastern Asia.

Besides if you were including New World herbs and spices, you'd have  
to include chocolate.
