sorrel summer

I am growing sorrel for the first time ever and loving it.

I have no idea how I lived this many years without this herb/vegetable. Much like spinach in it's quick cooking time, but with huge leaves like kale or chard, and a lemony tangy taste I love, love, love. I read that it's better when the leaves are small but I haven't really noticed that. I have also read that by mid summer it's bitter and 'over'. But I haven't let it flower and it still seems yummy to us.

I can't wait to get some salmon and try this pesto recipe on it.

I am not sure if it will winter over here in MN but I know I will want some of it every year. It is wonderful. I even go out in the heat to pick it when I want that tang.
