Sorrel Soup with Chorizo

 
Sorrel Soup with Chorizo
66

I cook sorrel soup every spring year by year because of the unique sour flavor. I usually make it on the base of long simmered veal bones. This spring the process of cooking was shortened by using Spanish chorizo. No regret.

REMEMBER SORREL IS HIGH IN OXALIC ACID. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH KIDNEY STONES LIMIT HOW MUCH YOU EAT...

thanks, my friend.. you're absolutely right.. I carefully use sorrel as well as spinach and rhubarb in my diet.. btw, do you know that sorrel stems are several times healthier than the leaves.. when I cook the sorrel and tarragon sauce I just use the sorrel stems.. sometimes I cannot resist and I make this old French sauce.. ok, see you around..
