A few days ago a posted a recipe where I used a mystery green vegetable. I've been eating and loving that vegetable for many months, and now, thanks to some friends here, I finally know that it's sorrel.
I should have figured that out- I even planted it in my garden last year, although I'm not sure if I even ate any of it. I also should have kept trying different spelling combinations and I'd have found it (it's щавель- I never tried an "a").
So now I have three common vegetables here that I love and eat all the time that aren't so common in the US- green garlic, garlic chives, and sorrel. At least they're all pretty easy to grow, and sorrel has a long growing season.
