* Woods Sorrel - Oxalis montana Raf.

Oxalis montana Raf.

This plant is commonly found in damp areas, such as along mossy banks of streams, and in swamps. The sorrels have somewhat sour-tasting leaves, with a sweet accent. The wood sorrel and yellow wood sorrel (Oxalis stricta L.) are among my personal favourites.

Wood sorrels are not related to the sorrels and docks of the genus Rumex L., although they have a similar flavour. Both sorrels are best enjoyed raw.
