A picture of Delia's Sorrel ingredient

Sorrel

Much loved and used for sauces and soups in France, sorrel is not so widely known here.

Yet it's easy to grow and well worth including in a herb garden. It has leaves similar in appearance to spinach and indeed tastes like a sharper version of spinach. Because of this sharpness very little of it is needed – a couple of handfuls, about 1½ oz (40 g) is enough to make a delicious soup.
