In the Middle Ages, travellers put lovage leaves in their shoes to revive their weary feet and to deodorise them! I prefer to put the leaves in soups and stews, for their lovely 'umami' flavour.

The paired leaves of Tutsan (Hypericum androsaemum). Richard Mabey, in his book The Frampton Flora, says that the leathery leaves were once dried and pressed between the pages of Bibles and prayerbooks, hence its alternative name of Bible leaf.
