USES & COOKING SUGGESTIONS

Sorrel in French means “sour” so mix this green along with milder ones for a salad. Whirl in with dressings, purees, or let it’s flavor permeate an oil – all of these applications go particularly well on fish!

*Note: sorrel in high in oxalic acid so those on diets avoiding oxalic acid should shy away from this tasty green.
