Common sorrel (Rumex acetosa) is a wonderful wild food to gather from fields and hedgerows. It has a lemony tang which is great with fish, dairy products and in salad.
Here I describe a little of its characteristics and uses. You can find sorrel in my Wild Food Foraging book, including;
- Photos of it in different seasons
- Step by step recipes with photos
- ID tips
- Nutritional benefits
Sorrel is one of the plants I cover in my foraging courses, which is a fantastic way to learn about foraging through hands on experience with a professional guide.
