Sorrel is a hardy herb native to grassy places, open woodland, or mountain ledges.

It is a short-lived perennial often found across British Isles and does best in mildly acidic soils.

They can be pureed to add flavor to your soups and sauces, or be eaten as a salad green.

The young, tender leaves of Sorrel make outstanding soups and enhance the flavor of other greens.

It has an unbelievably sharp, lemony taste similar to that of a grape skin due to the presence of oxalic acid.

The leaves are shaped much like spinach leaves with colors ranging from pale to dark green. You can use them in salads and in sauce making.

It can be cooked like spinach or used as a salad green, but it is advised you use it sparingly. The plants bear reddish-green flower that usually blooming around May to August and becoming purplish.
