Savory

Savory was grown in the garden of the Menagier de Paris. It is of the labiatae family. Summer savory (Satureja hortensis) is an annual herbaceous plant and winter savory (Satureja montana), the most common of the two in the garden centers today, is a ligneous perennial plant.

Savory was supposed to sharpen the fieriness of the body. Platina said it exited to lust and was capable of awakening a lethargic man sleeping as dead. This is why some monasteries refused to grow it.
