A great way to freeze sorrel (shchavel) for winter.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 6 servings
- Freezer Ziploc bag
- Parsley, optional
- Dill, optional
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.
