Sorrell – what the heck is it?

You are unlikely ever to find sorrell in your grocery store – it’s shelf life is too short for commercialization.   And that’s too bad, because it’s bright, lemony flavor scores a big hit.  The good news: as an Aerogardener you can grow your own!  Besides its role as a salad green, sorrell doubles as an herb – it  gives  vegetable soups a tangy flavor, and dissolved  in a skillet with butter and cream it melts into a delightful sauce for fish or eggs.  Come Spring, you can plant AeroGarden sorrell  outside  for bigger harvests,  and it will come back year after year.
