So, what is creeping woodsorrel?

Creeping woodsorrel, also known as Oxalis corniculata, is a perennial herb that grows low to the ground with heart-shaped leaves and small yellow flowers. This wild plant has a lemony taste due to its high levels of oxalic acid, which can be enjoyed raw in salads or cooked in soups and stews. Creeping woodsorrel is also used for medicinal purposes, as it contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce fever and alleviate stomach ailments. Despite its invasive nature, this delightful herb is a popular addition to gardens and is beloved by foragers and chefs alike for its unique flavor and health benefits.
