Sorrel Soup

This is one of my all time favorite soups because I like sour. Sorrel leaves are like spinach leaves except they are sour. I grow Sorrel in the summer time in my garden. it’s very easy to grow and easy to can. I have a very small crop growing so I usually go to my dads garden and get some from him. last year I was so busy that I did not can or grow any. So the only place I know where you can get some is at a Ukrainian Grocery store. This soup is so easy to make and it has all these very homey ingredients. it’s also great if you are trying to eat clean which is really easy to follow if you cook at home.
