Sorrel Sauce

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Christmas is really here and by the sight of all the sorrel being sold at the market and also at the roadside on the highway it only means one thing: sorrel, sorrel and more sorrel to drink.  But, what about other recipes using sorrel? In the past I have done a sorrel jam, sorrel cake and even a sorrel chicken recipe, but this year I decided to go one step further again and do some more recipes using red sorrel.

By the way recently, I saw a really dark red sorrel almost black. It’s not so sour as the regular red sorrel,  but makes a really nice sorrel drink as well. Have to look for some more :)

Now, this sorrel sauce is a delight; it has a tart taste that makes it perfect to serve with almost any kind of grilled and baked meat. I have been envisioning a baked turkey with some sorrel sauce or even a grilled pork with some sorrel sauce maybe modified a bit for a kind of barbecue finish but that’s just me being creative. Will have to write down that idea….Here is sorrel sauce trinistyle.  Enjoy!

1 lb sorrel sepals washed an dried

1/2 tsp ground allspice

Add orange juice and zest mix thoroughly allow to cool before serving.

Note: This sauce is a bit thick for some people. If you want the sauce a little thinner just add water to your liking.
