Herbs and flowers

 

 
 

Rumex, Rumex acetosa

Family of poligonaceae

This plant was already known and used by Romans, who used to bite it in order to win the thirst. It grows in uncultivated fields and along streams sides.

Use
In the Middle Age it was normally used in recipes. Pick up the leaves in Spring and then boil them and use for less tasty courses, or together with other vegetables in minestroni.
