French Sorrel--Part 2
French Sorrel is like a long-time and faithful friend–sometimes taken for granted, always there when needed, ever pleasant and refreshing. See a previous post on the virtues of sorrel.

I can make sorrel pesto almost year-round. French sorrel, definitely reliable and refreshing.
