Ingredients

  • Sorrel
  • Freezer Ziploc bag
  • Parsley, optional
  • Dill, optional

Instructions

  • Wash leaves and lay them out to completely dry. Chop as if you would for soup. Chop herbs. Place in freezer Ziploc bag. Freeze for up to several months.
  • Tip: Since I add parsley and dill into my Sorrel Soup, what I do is make Ziploc baggies with enough sorrel for 1 recipe of the Soup, I add the herbs in with it and breeze together. When making the soup in the winter, I don’t have to worry about finding fresh herbs, they are already in my baggie. You’re welcome.
  • Tip: To keep the leaves from having a freezer like taste. Once I place all the sorrel and herbs into baggies, I place the bags into a container. Holds up a lot better that way, the freezer is more organized and easier to find things.
