Garden Fresh Greens
Sorrel isn't my favorite veggie, but anything from the garden tastes good this time of year. Sorrel is sour and lemony, and sauteed with salt and pepper, it is pretty good. It is high in oxalic acid, so you don't want to eat too much of it at once. Not usually a problem here, though my daughters really like to go eat it out of the garden so I have to keep an eye on that. The chickens also like to eat it. My garden borders the chicken pen, and they keep the sorrel they can reach through the fence well picked. I threw a couple of handfuls over the fence to them this morning when I picked mine for breakfast.
