Norma, my sister, asked Mom for the recipe and of course Mom didn't have a written recipe..so one day Mom cooked the moos and my sister measured the ingredients. I am so glad she did:)
Now I have my own row of sorrel plants in my garden and since they are a perennial they come up year after year and I get many cuttings all summer long. I freeze the extra to use in winter.
- 8 cups water
- 2 cups raisins
- 4 cups chopped sorrel leaves
- 6 tablespoons flour or cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup whipping cream
- Boil water and raisins together for 10 minutes.
- Add chopped sorrel leaves and bring to a rolling boil.
- Stir in the flour (or cornstarch) and milk which have been whisked together.
- Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
- Add cream and bring mixture to a rolling boil.
- Remove from heat and cool.
- You can eat it hot or cold..I like it both ways.
