Overview

This is a plant of which only the leaves are used. There is a wild species, very tasty, with small red and green leaves, and a cultivated variety with large green leaves.

Use

Pick off leaves, wash and dry them, then remove the central vein if it's large.sorrel
Add leaves to your recipe whole, it's not necessary to chop them because cooking reduces them a lot.

Keeping

Sorrel can be frozen, but the result is hardly worthwhile.

Remarks

The wonderful green of sorrel leaves doesn't survive being cooked, and quickly turns a murky brown. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to prevent this.
