Sorrel Soup

I went and picked Sorrel (Rumex acetosa) for this warming, tangy sorrel soup recipe.

Sorrel is widely available, and can often be found on grassland and in hedges. For this recipe, I went along an old green lane at the back of my house and found a great cluster of these lemony tasting leaves.

Sorrel leaves are a great addition to this warming, tangy Autumn soup recipe. Extremely easy to make, and super quick too.

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.
