Sheep's Sorrel

         
 
3 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Rumex acetosella) Perennial to 1.5 feet tall-- Often called field sorrel or red sorrel. Tangy, tart leaves make a delicious early-spring green, and come at a time when little else is available in the garden. Lemony leaves are also used as a garnish, in salads, or in place of rennet for making cheese. Tolerates poor, sandy or acid soil. Remove seed heads, confine behind barrier set 8" deep to keep it within bounds. (Cannot be shipped to Connecticut.)

What are the pros? very medicinal

What are the cons? none yet

Review:

Actually, this isn't the clover-like sour tasting plant in the previous review. That particular plant is called Sheep Shire, but commonly confused with Sheep Sorrel. I ate Sheep Shire as a kid too, but this is entirely different. Sheep Sorrel is one of the 4 herbs used in the highly medicinal and famous, cancer fighting, Essiac Tea. I have bought the herb before, but not yet planted it. I plan to next spring.

Review:

I used to eat this stuff as a kid. Still do when I find it growing back home. I've heard rumors of a pie made from it. No idea how to do it. Looks like Clover with dark markings on the leaves.
