Did you know…

Sorrel is a wonderfully tart and succulent treat! It is a perennial herb that belongs in the knotweed family along with rhubarb and buckwheat.

 

Sorrel is packed with vitamins A and C, potassium, and oxalic acid. Vitamins A and C contribute to eye health and a healthier and stronger immune system, respectively, and potassium helps to lower one’s blood pressure and increase blood circulation.

 

The tender green is also very low in calories, with 2.3 grams of protein in every 3.5 oz portion.

Sorrel is a lovely accompaniment to seafood and mild-flavored meats like poultry and can add a nice zing to any smoothie or salad.
