Shall I post on the Recipe Board next week???

        Yeah PearlD, that is just plain mean. Very jealous! If you can't take us all with you, the very least you could do is post some recipes. Enjoy yourself, for all of us back here freezing our A------ off :)

          Arrrrrgh, I just made some for the first time last night. Would have loved to have had your recipe.

          But.... I was in Kensington last weekend and found fresh sorrel at the little West Indian store on Baldwin right beside the entrance to the parking garage.

          Some questions for you PearlD...
          My recipe had cloves, do you add them?
          Do you use brown or white sugar?
          Do you add rum or wine or both?
          What kind of wine do you use?

          Thanks and enjoy Christmas in the sun.

              Sorry Mila, I don't have my recipe for Sorrel Punch here in Toronto and can't remember quantities, I'll be there and online next week so I'll 'post' to the Recipe Board. (I don't use wine 'tho I use only light rum...no cloves, white sugar since the dark sugar isn't the same as here......more to follow next week I promise)
