AKA: Field Sorrel, Sheep's Sorrel, Sour Weed
A relative of rhubarb, sorrel has a bright, tart and citrusy flavor perfect for livening up salads. There are many varieties of sorrel, but few are as striking as these red-veined leaves. Cultivated sorrel is available year-round, with spring and summer being the peak seasons. Wild sorrel is in season from early summer to fall. It grows throughout the United States, southeastern and central Europe, Great Britain, and can tolerate cold as far North as Scandinavia and Iceland.
