Sorrel Delights from the Spring Garden

Plants - Buckler Sorrel           Plants - Buckler Sorrel 2

This pretty little plant, the sorrel, buckler variety, comes back every year and spreads itself in a friendly way.   When I’m out harvesting rhubarb these days I regularly grab a few handsful of this little plant.  One taste and you are wowed because it’s a quick slap of lemony brightness.  Salads are an easy place for them, but lately I’ve been whirring them into fruit/veggie smoothies right along with some fresh rhubarb.  The combination of the lemony and tart along with some sweet fruit is magical!  Next I want to try some in a fresh sauce for cooked beans or asparagus.  Doesn’t that sound good?  If you don’t have a buckler sorrel you might like to get one in this year.  It will pay you back for many years to come!

On a side note, today is my 100th post!  Thank you to all my dear readers and followers.  I’m delighted that anyone finds anything I write to be helpful.
