It occurs to me I should mention that what I bought at the Persian market  
and re-tasted yesterday were rue seeds. I'll have to go looking for some 
green  rue - or try planting what I have.

I should also point out that  personally I have no fear of rue. But then, 
in playing with Roman cuisine, I ate  a few things I'd hesitate to recommend 
to others. And in fact there is  very little of what I made for my own 
edification that I would ever serve to  others.

Roman or medieval spices you've never heard of ? Sure?"
