P.P.S Here is a fun recipe for one of the lesser known greens we have included, French Sorrel.  While it is great in salads, it is also a beautiful lemony accompaniment to any fish dish.

Sorrel Sauce for Fish

1/2 cup chopped fresh sorrel
2 T dry white wine
3 T minced green onions
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 t fresh lime juice
Ground white pepper

Combine sorrel, wine and shallots in heavy small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sorrel wilts, about 2 minutes. Add cream and lime juice. Boil until reduced to sauce consistency, about 12 minutes. Transfer sauce to blender. Puree until almost smooth. Return sauce to same saucepan. Season with ground white pepper and salt.
