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.
One of the things I love about teaching foraging is changing people's opinions about 'weeds'.
Actually, I don't need to do anything to change people's opinions because these weeds are so amazing and some are so tasty, my work is done for me!
Hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta) is one such weed. In this blog I share where to find it, how to identify it, how to use it and why to eat it!
