  • use spinach then, squeeze in half a lemon, and bob's your uncle! (spinach, as far as I remember, is more bland than sorrel... but please, don't hold me responsible for this culinary experiment :D In Poland all the children universally claim that spinach is yuck! And sorrel is not eaten very often (methinks).
