INFO

Wood Sorrel is one of those plants that you’ve probably missed in the past, but once you know what it looks like, you can spot carpets of the stuff growing all over the place. Happiest on forest floors, it appears all year round and provides a tasty snack on any stomp through the woods. It looks a lot like the clover you will find in your nearest lawn, but has a much more fragile leaf and stem.

Taste-wise, Wood Sorrel has a flavour that has been compared to lemons, apples and even grape skins. Expect a strong tartness for such a small plant! We recommend not cooking it, but adding it to dishes as a garnish or mixing through greek yoghurt. If you do choose to cook with it, whack it in a simple sauce and serve with something that would go well with a lemon kick such as shellfish, Mediterranean vegetables or summer soups. You won’t be surprised to hear that it is packed with Vitamin C, so it is great for your health too!

As with many foods, it is recommended to not eat too much Wood Sorrel in one sitting - the amount we have sent you is about right for someone with no known health issues concerning the kidneys. If unsure, please seek medical guidance.
