acetosa/acetosella dei boschi

sorrel/wood sorrel

Acetosa is garden sorrel, with broad leaves; acetosella dei boschi is wood sorrel, a small plant that looks like a shamrock. Both are sharply lemony; acetosa is used to make sorrel soup, vellutata or minestra di acetosa.

Both kinds are used in sauces for fish, rabbit or eggs.
