Sorrel Soup

Bright sorrel is one of my first spring greens to pop up. Actually, it grows strong in the spring, dies back in the heat and comes back in the fall...love it. Sorrel's strong sour flavor helps to stimulate and decongest the Liver and Gallbladder after Winter's heavier foods. Use it in dressings, to flavor eggs or as an usual soup.
