Red-veined Sorrel

Red-veined Dock
Spinach, beets, Swiss chard, rhubarb, and sorrel are all in the same family. For years I have used spinach and Swiss chard interchangeably, but I never new you could do the same with sorrel. While I think the green sorrel is to tart in some cases, the red-veined sorrel works fine. This morning I mixed garlic chives and red-veined sorrel in with my eggs. It was great.

And while I think the green sorrel makes a very pretty addition to a flower bed, the red-veined adds a splash color. Even if you never eat it, it is worth growing.

    I have these growing wild in my front, transplanted from a demolished home. They are stunning! I can’t wait to add them to eggs and some garlic. Sounds delicious.
