My hubby, who is Jewish grew up eating this from a jar. He says he likes the homemade version much better. Don't worry about using a whole bulb of garlic, the flavor mellows as it cooks. Serve this soup cold. A dollop of sour cream goes well with this soup and you can double the recipe.
Sorrel has long green leaves and has a slight tart taste.
