Favoriate ways to use sorrell?

HillsofBeverly Jul 7, 2013 03:56 PM

I obtained a good sized (grocery store produce bag) bag of sorrell leaves at the local farmer's market, used a handful in a small version of the Ottolenghi fried beans w/sorrell and feta recipe (a keeper) and am now trying to figure out what to do with the rest. Bittman's nut and sorrell sauce? A soup? Sauce for salmon? We eat little meat, I prefer veg and whole grains but do like oily fish. What do people enjoy most from sorrell?

BTW this is a tangy but not overwhelming batch, leaves not too large.

Thank you!

    Cream of sorrel soup. You can eat it cold, for the summer.

              I keep meaning to try this sorrel panna cotta, but haven't yet: http://www.bonappetit.com/blogsandfor...

              Might have to bump it up to the top of my list; sounds like a nice end to a summer meal.
