I use both rue and spikenard pretty freely. I actually like the flavor that rue imparts, and while I've found that full-strength spikenard can be pretty stinky, a small amount adds a pleasant musky scent to food.

But I also fully disclose what I'm putting into whatever I cook, and I'd be hesitant to recommend either of these for something to be consumed by a lot of folks (feast or dayboard).
