Sorrel Sauce Recipe

Pick Sorrel, sheep sorrel, sour grass or red sorrel (Rumex Acetosella) for this recipe.

Sorrel also can be made into a meat sauce, especially if you have a blender. Dissolve 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey in three tablespoons of hot water. Cool and add 1/2 cup finely chopped sorrel leaves and 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar. Make this early enough so the ingredients can set together for at least 30 minutes (but not more than two hours) before using. Now that we've explored some of sorrel's possibilities let's take a walk into the moist woods where we can find another plant that is just coming into its own for food purposes.
