    Has anyone else ever identified / eaten sorrel? It's pretty tastey and looks like 3 leafed clover.

    Sure, sorrel is great, its quite tangy, sort of sour, good in a salad, you don't want to eat too much though it'll mess with your digestion and give you the runs.

    There is a couple of different kinds Oxalis acetosella or wood sorrel (the kind that looks like clover), and Rumex acetosa or sheep sorrel which looks like a leafy green, both are tart and enjoyable, but don't eat too much.
