|Is Garden Sorrel knon by other names, especially "recao"?|
|It is my understanding that recao refers to a blend of herbs cooked in butter or oil and then added to a stew or soup or braised dish for flavoring. Since sorrel adds a lemony flavor I suppose it could be added to the recao depending on personal taste. |
I did find a different reference to recao as follows, but it does not include sorrel in this context:
"Recao Del Monte known as Eryngium foetidum known as (ngo gai)"
The Latin name for sorrel, the perennial salad and seasoning green used in Europe, is Rumex acetosa. I hope this helps answer your question.
