Wood Sorrel #Oxalis Edible, no poisonous look alikes 👀 Goes well in salads as a side dish with wild game or fish. Don't eat massive quantities though- that will inhibit absorption of calcium. Wood sorrel used to be used as #naturmedicine for urinary tract infections. #woodsorrel#imafox#apunkfox Flavor: tangy
#OcaLeaf resembles and tastes tart like #WoodSorrel because they're both in the #Oxalis family. Oca Leaf has much more substantial, hearty leaves for a better bite, not to mention withstanding heat better than other wood sorrels.
managed to spread these lil sorrels and painted the pot 'cos it's such a pretty little piece around here. also found it cool that these randomly sprouted in this pot and ended up being so neat and tasty :) #gardening#paint#woodsorrel#sorrel#wildedibles
Combining three of my loves--thrifting, vintage, and wild edibles--I scored a 1967 copy of "Spring Flora of Wisconsin" for 10¢ at a local garage sale. I now have an analog reference book so I can forage without the Google. Positive ID of this wood sorrel (oxalis stricta) with a few little pods ripe for my first tasting. #foragedfood#woodsorrel
Cooking with heart 💚💚💚Wood sorrel or sourgrass or heart-shaped leaves #edibleflowers
One of the healthiest edible flower, rich in Vitamin C. Historically, it was used to treat scurvy, fevers, urinary infections, mouth sores, nausea and sore throats. It's qualities and flavor are similar to sheep sorrel.
however people with gout, rheumatism and kidney stones should avoid it.

On my morning hike in the woods this morning, I came across these amazing 'Wood sorrel', well... at least I think that's what they are, let me know in the comments below - if anyone can identify this plant 🙏🏼👇🏼
Those of you who follow my #instastory will know we’ve been foraging for the last few days in Beautiful South Devon 😊🍄 I’ve eaten..... #cobnuts#blackberries#figs#bilberries#mulberries#bolettes#chickenofthewoods#woodsorrel & #apples ✅✅✅ I think my favourite was the mulberries and I’m going to get my own bush for sure 😊👍🏻 Today though, we found a huge crop of chicken of the woods and @duncanindevon is cooking again tonight 👨🍳 He’s added the fungi to some high welfare outdoor reared bacon, garlic and thyme 🙌🏼 then fried until cooked. He’s adding this to some tricolour pasta 🍝 eggs and cheese for a carbonara vibe 😋 I literally can’t wait 😎
Dinner tonight: Wild Herb Salad (Parsley, Purslane, Red Celery, Wood Sorrel, and Goat Cheese Dots) with fried okra and green tomato. On a bed of mixed grains sit Pimentos stuffed with a poached egg. Make your own Nasturtium Tacos offered as an alternative.
