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.
