Overview

Sheep sorrel is widely regarded as a noxious weed with 45 of the fifty states reporting it as an intruder, but the small, creeping plant has a long-standing reputation as a beneficial herb. Sheep sorrel does have some culinary value as a garnish and a tart flavoring agent in salads and soups, and is one of the main ingredients in Chinese hot and sour soup.

Parts Used

Dried aerial portions ground into powder.

Typical Preparations

In tea, soup and chilled beverages. Powder can be used in extracts or encapsulation and is commonly found in Essiac blends.

Summary

Sorrel does make a wonderfully cooling beverage and soup, and its tart flavor is a perfect foil for hot and spicy herbs and seeds.
