Description: Sorrel is an excellent perennial herb that can be used raw or cooked. In salads the leaves give a tart, tangy flavour and we use them all year round. The smaller leaves are milder and the taste stronger in larger leaves. It is also traditionally used to make French Sorrel Soup. Plants can be cut back to rejuvenate them and can be divided to create new plants.
