Q.

Is it possible to freeze sorrel leaf? How do I do it?

We haven’t tested this ourselves, but we’ve read that fresh sorrel can be frozen if it’s cooked down into a sauce first (a butter-based sauce was suggested).  Once you’ve made your sauce, just freeze it in the quantities you expect to use going forward.

If you think you’re only going to want a little at a time, ice cube trays are a great – just freeze into cubes, then move them from the trays to a zip-top bag for long term storage.

    Hi Antonette,

    Freezing is fine. As to eating, most people pick the leaves off the stems (though you might be able to get away with leaving them on in cooked applications with young sorrel leaves). The older the leaves get, the woodier & less palatable the stems are.

    Another way to use the stems would be to include them in the blender when making a sorrel sauce. Just strain any bits out of the sauce before using it.

    I hope that helps!
