I've been trying to get hold of rue for some while now without much
succes..a few questions that might help me locate it. I've been
looking for it in quite a few stores
Is it used in presentday cooking..what culture?
Does it go by any other names....in other languages?
(although the name in swedish is similar to the latin name "Ruta"...a
different english name might be helpfull)
Is it likely to be found in a health store
- This is my first post to this list.
I am relatively new to Roman cooking, but I have tried a couple recipes
because my husband portrays a fictional persona in the Society of
Creative Anachronism (SCA). He is doing a 1st century AD Roman. We have
been members of the group for little over a year, and it's a lot of fun
for the both of us. When we are together, I dress like a Roman lady.
I've tried a lentil recipe from The Classical Cookbook substituting
rosemary for rue, and the second time around, I tried using sage
instead of rosemary or rue. (I don't have access to rue.) The sage was
milder than the rosemary, but both ways tasted good. My husband liked
