|There are generally 2 types of sorrel: garden sorrel with light-green leaves.|
|But there's also a wild sorrel that grows (in Europe), usually in hedges or fields that aren't mowed.|
|You'll easily recognize it by the top of the plant, which has the shape of tiny red "petals", grouped together in stems.|
|These are the leaves we use, darker green, small at the top of the stem...|
|...and larger at the bottom.|
If you're in any doubt as to whether it's sorrel or not, the easiest way is to taste a leaf, and you'll soon know whether it's sorrel or not.
