Sorrel Drink


1 lb. sorrel

11 cups water

1 cup sugar

5 cloves


Clean the sorrel to remove any old leaves and bugs that may have snuck in there

Separate the sepals from the seed by cutting a round circle just below the ‘spines’. Note: Don’t touch the seeds with your bare hands! There are some fine ‘hairs’ that will penetrate the skin and makes for a rather uncomfortable experience. You dont want to be thinking about this while enjoying your sorrel

Wash thoroughly but not too vigorously

Place all ingredients except sugar in a tall pot. This is important as the mixture tends to froth and bubble up

Boil for approx 20 minutes or until the sepals looks whiteish

Strain the mixture and add sugar to taste before it cools

Cool mixture and enjoy a glass before bottling the rest!
