NAT­U­RAL RE­PEL­LENT

Landscape (UK) - - In The Kitchen -

The at­trac­tive blue-green leaves of rue, Ruta grave­olens, have an aro­matic, some­times pun­gent, scent and bit­ter flavour. Though not rec­om­mended for use in food, rue of­f­cuts, pruned in spring and hung in bunches, are a nat­u­ral way to keep in­sects at bay. Gloves are worn when han­dling the herb as blis­ters some­times re­sult from di­rect con­tact.
