Country style chicken soup with sorrel

I’ve been quite busy gathering herbs, making tinctures, teas and salves. Gardening and preparing the first vegetables for winter also eats up a lot of my time. I wanted to go up in the mountains again this weekend, but it’s pouring outside! I wanted to see what herbs I can gather, so far I’m all stocked up on sorrel, wild garlic, dandelion and nettles.

And since I have so much sorrel, making one of my grandma’s favorite chicken soups was mandatory!

This soup is perfect for rainy, gloomy days.

So first thing’s first – a chicken was sacrificed for this soup. Other ingredients from the garden: carrots (2), onion (1 ), garlic (2-3 cloves), parsnip (1), root celery (half from a small one). And of course the star of this dish : a hand full of fresh picked sorrel.

For those who don’t know this magnificent herb , sorrel is packed with lots of vitamins and minerals and it is a strong antioxidant . It helps with blood pressure, bad cholesterol and detoxification of the entire body.
