Review:

Everyone has been writing about how they use red orach in salads so I wanted to add a suggestion you may like to try: soup! In Romania, where I was born, red orach soup is a traditional spring soup that is VERY popular and tasty. In the States, since I haven't been able to find orach at any grocery store, I went for a very long time without this soup, until I learned to grow my own thanks to rareseed.com. I will be forever grateful to rareseeds for being able to re-create this childhood favorite. Here's a couple recipes: http://foodcocktail.com/red-orach-sour-soup/ and http://www.uncover-romania.com/about-romania/romanian-recipes/soups/red-orach.html. For a REAL Romanian experience, you may want to substitute lovage for parsley (we use lovage like Americans use parsley).

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
