My adventures in a Zone 9 Southern California garden.
Tuesday, March 24, 2009
This is one of the new plants this year for the veggie garden and it is called Sorrel. According to Noah and my tastings (bitten right off the plant before planting!), it has the texture of spinach, but has some citrus/lemon flavors that make it very "bright." I went looking online for some recipe suggestions and found this lovely little site. It hasn't been updated in 2009, but I'm linking to the Sorrel recipes because they all sounded so interesting! It can be picked and added to salads or sandwiches, but it can also be baked into quiches and soups and also combines well with ginger flavors to add to chicken dishes. I am really looking forward to experimenting with this over the next few weeks as it grows!
I am a mom and gardener in Southern California who loves to plant new things to grow and eat. My family loves to play and eat off the vine in the garden so we are totally organic. We really enjoy the beauty given to us from God!
