The Story of Sorrel or Rumex Acetosa, a most useful herb in the garden

I planted some Sorrel in my organic vegetable garden and also in a terra cotta pot oustide my kitchen. I don’t remember having ever eaten Sorrel but it looked nice and I liked the sound of it. It turns out, it’s quite the hardy little herb, that keeps on giving.  I kept on giving it away, bunches of it, every time it looked like it could do with a good picking. Until, today. I felt the time had come for me to eat it. I looked it up in the “Complete Book of Herbs & Spices”, and found that if I just pulped it in a small cuisinart, it was the perfect addition to an omelette, one of my most favorite things to eat. I picked a handful of leaves, pulped them with 2 tbsp of extra virgin organic olive oil and add 4 tbsp at least of it to my simmering omelet. It was a revelation! Completely shockingly delicious. I’m not giving it away anymore. Go plant your own!
