Sorrel Greens (48 Days)

Known as Oseille in France, where Sorrel is a popular vegetable. In the US it is sometimes known as Dock. Flavor is somewhat acidic, reminiscent of citrus. Often pureed and served with a cream sauce or fresh in salads with vinaigrette. Also makes splendid soup. Easy to grow and nutritious, providing ample harvests throughout the season.

Sprouting!

The sorrel seeds are up. The sprouts are tiny still because I've only had them in soil since last week because of our late frost date in North Idaho. I've given only a four-rating because there's lots of growing for them still to do. I love sorrel fresh in salads and make a sorrel sauce using shallots and sorrel sauteed in butter, then a splash of cream...or not. It's delicious on eggs, chicken, or fish. So far, so good!

survives in winter!

Last year planted sorrel seeds and was very surprised to see that they are still green even in January here in Piedmont North Carolina. We love the flavor, and use it in salads, mixed sauteed greens, fish, etc. I love gardening in the wintertime with no bugs and no watering, so I'm planting more sorrel. I did make sure to clip off all the seed stalks this summer.

great all season green

Years ago I thought I would try sorrel without a great expectation. The young grandkids all loved to pick and eat it right out of the garden. I was surprised the next spring to see it come back strong in our 5a climate. It is one of the first and last vegetables to pick and does add great flavor to soups pureed in. It is also a tasty addition to salad and wrapped around fish and baked. One of my best garden discoveries. Be careful to control it's seeding (it's almost a ****).
