Pinsteps. Rue: A Plant with History and Culinary Use in Ofer Forest
Places to visit in Israel. Languages: he, en, ru

Rue, often associated with folklore about warding off demons due to its strong smell, has a rich history. In the Middle Ages, it was believed that carrying rue could repel rats. Today, its distinct aroma is valued for flavoring olive oil. Just a few branches are sufficient to infuse a jar of oil, creating an excellent base for special culinary creations.

An interesting aspect of rue is its harvesting method; it is best picked at night. Daytime sun exposure can damage its aromatic compounds, so nocturnal harvesting preserves its potent essence. This combination of historical significance and contemporary culinary use makes rue a unique and versatile plant in Ofer Forest.
