Sorrel is a perennial herb/vegetable native to europe where it has been cultivated for centuries and is used in many traditional cuisines. It has large, slender, arrow shaped green leaves and is sometimes called Narrow-Leaved Dock.
It has a tangy lemon flavour(caused by oxalic acid) and the baby leaves make a wonderful addition to salads. The mature leaves can be used like spinach and make a delicious sour soup.
This is a very useful culinary herb that produces leaves from very early spring till autumn and as a perennial it keeps on going year after year.
