Hungarian Sorrel Sauce Recipe

Sorrel Sauce

Sorrel (Hungarian: sóska) is a leafy veg similar to spinach, but its taste is mild sour. To balance out the acidity, we add little bit of sugar to the sorrel sause. The Hungarian Sorrel Sause (sóskamártás) has a very specific sweet, sour and vegetal taste.

We grow sorrel in our garden. It is perennial.
