Sorrel is available year round.
Garden sorrel is the standard sorrel variety and an indispensable green in European and Mediterranean cooking. Its long broad kelly green leaves are tangy and succulent, much like the texture of spinach, with lemon undertones and an acidic finish which may be due to its high oxalic acid content.
Sorrel is a good complimentary herb to pair with rich fatty meats. It also makes a great puree, sauce or soup. It is recommended to only use a stainless steel knife when and if cutting sorrel. It is easy to tear by hand. Refrain from cooking in metal pots all together as its high acid content discolours and erodes metal cookware.
Sorrel is widely used in French cuisine to make soup, tarts and the Troisgros brothers' salmon with sorrel sauce. In England, a popular sweet-sour sauce called greensauce was so commonly made with sorrel that sorrel itself came to be called "greensauce". Its acidic nature has given it the name "sour grass".
Sorrel is a perennial herb which belongs to the buckwheat family. Originating in the Highland areas of Southern France and then extending to neighboring countries, sorrel now grows naturally throughout the Northern hemisphere, including temperate regions of Western United States.
