I am leaving tomorrow for a week away with family, a week in South Dakota (Yes, that’s not a typo).  As I prepare to leave, a feeling of guilty swept over me…I haven’t blogged in a week.  The chances of me blogging while I’m away are nil, zip, zilch…not going to happen!   While I enjoy a week with my nieces and nephews ( I have a brand new 2 week old nephew I’m going to meet for the first time)  I leave you a recipe that I’ve wanted to post for the last year!  Yes, I have 2 posts about this recipe that were never published.  I will update later with more information about Sorrel, but for now, just a recipe!

Sorrel

4 cups water

1/2 cup dried sorrel

1 cinnamon stick

10 cloves

1 inch peeled piece of ginger

sugar to taste

Add all ingredients in pot and bring to a boil.  Cover and simmer for 30 mins.  Remove from heat, remove all solids by straining.  Chill and serve over ice.

    I accidentally stumbled on your website looking for a recipe for metemgee, and I’m glued! I joined the military and have been far away from home for way too long. Now I have kids of my own, I find myself struggling to fight off fast food and replace it with some good Guyanese food. Thank you so much!
