purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean

2012.08_hyssop wine
Years ago a friend's mom brought some hyssop-infused wine to a gathering. I was intrigued, but forgot about it until we were gifted a perennial hyssop plant. What do you do with hyssop? The Internet warned of it's strong flavor and said that the French and Romans put it in wine–so that's what we did. It is pretty and adds a bit of refreshment to the wine, but mostly it is pretty. It also makes a nice tea.
