Just some more info:

I got a new magazine a few days ago (with a lot of nice recipes) and  4 
whole pages devoted to woodruff.

There is a quote but unfortunately without source:
"schütte den perlenden wein über das Waldmeisterlein" (pour the bubbling 
wine over the woodruff) atributed to the benedictine monk Wandalbert in the 
year 854. I didn not yet try to find anything about this in the net.

Maybe some one on the list has more information on the periode-nes of use of 

The article mentiones also 10 to 12 sprigs as safe amount.

the magazin is in german the new kraut&rüben special Kräuter (2.nd edition)
