Made Wood Sorrel And Rice for dinner. My first time making a recipe from a "Wild edibles" cookbook. It's good, but more of a side dish than a main, I think.

I forgot the measurements, but it's basically "Pick a lot of wood sorrel/oxalis. (I used a sandwich bag full.) Wash it and trim off the tough parts. Make a 2-cup batch of rice, using chicken stock instead of water. Stir the oxalis into the piping=hot rice and let it wilt in."

Oxalic acid CAN be harmful, even deadly.
I have read that some people in GB died of eating rhubarb leaves during WWII.
I do not know how much would be necessary to cause illness, however, I would be cautious in the amount I consumed.
We have both yellow and purple wood sorrel here, but only nibble on a few of the unripe seed pods.
To get a serious sour, lime or lemon, or for those who live in a warm enough climate, sour orange is the usual choice.

I ran the idea past my Dr, and he said it was ok. And I have enough health issues that if I can eat it, probably anyone with normal kidneys can. I think you have to eat way more than a serving to cause a problem.

A very sensible approach.
