Buying Tips

Choose sorrel with firm, bright-green, crisp, and arrow-shaped leaves. Avoid sorrel with woody-looking stems or leaves that are yellow or wilted. As all sorrel matures it becomes more acidic, whereas the smaller leaves tend to be less acidic.

Varieties

Belleville sorrel, also called sour dock and sour grass, is the most strongly flavored variety of sorrel.

Dock sorrel, also called spinach dock and herb patience dock, is the mildest variety.

Gourmet food stores sometimes carry cooked sorrel in jars and cans.

While dried leaves are available, fresh sorrel is more flavorful.
