This is a good raw trailside snack, with a  slightly citrus twang.  Add it to salads and stews for flavour.

It was a favourite vegetable of the Tudor period and appeared regularly at the table of Henry VIII.

It contains oxalic acid so don’t eat huge amounts of it, though a good handful in your salad is absolutely fine.  Sorrel enlivens the tasetebuds and and gets your digestive juices flowing.
