This is a good tomato and sorrel soup. The lovage, if you can get it, gives it a very special flavour. Though lovage is one of the oldest herbs it does not seem to grow in very many gardens – perhaps because it grows about six feet high and is less manageable than the more usual herbs. I find it easy to grow and it has a strong, unique flavour which is good in salads and for soups and stews. If you live in the country you will be able to find sorrel growing wild in a field or in your garden
