Sorrel

This is a sorrel plant and a sorrel flower. Sorrel is a plant I had never seen before coming to Dominica and it is used for juice and also to make wine.

Fresh juice is one of the pleasures of being in the Caribbean and there are quite a few unusual ones to try. Sorrel actually has to be boiled to make the juice and it comes out very red, I like the taste of it though the aftertaste is not for everyone.
