Pucker Producer

Edible plant of the day. Oxalis oregano (Redwood sorrel). Sometimes called false shamrock. This is the PNW native variety. It’s the field green version of Sour Patch Kids, and few of these are sure to produce a pucker because of oxalic acid. They’re a good source of vitamin C.  Remember that today, when you see a sign that reads “Kiss me I’m Irish.”
