What to do with all that Sorrel???

Over the years GCF has planted and harvested some very uncommon vegetables for our CSA members, and we hope to continue to try new and interesting things in the future. One very successful perennial at the farm has been our Broad Leaved Sorrel. I won’t say it’s been the most popular of additions to the CSA, but I blame that on it’s rarity and not its potential. There seem to be plenty of stories from our CSA members coming back wondering what that sour lettuce was or why their spinach tastes like rhubarb. Some people love it and some people just don’t know what to do with it. Other’s, like my son Micah, will just eat as much as he can right out of the garden!
