Herb identification Chervil and Sorrel

Chervil is a French herb that loves cool weather.  Most people know it only as part of mixes like the French herbes fines.  It is a delightful ferny plant that has a light slightly anise like flavor.  It is great with eggs or fish.  And it is a nice addition to a light flavored salad dressing on delicate spring lettuce

Sorrel is another French herb or green.  It has a strong lemony flavor and is great with fish.  I like to rinse, pat dry and slice in ribbons and wilt in oil or melted fat.  I use it in place of lemon where I want green color.  The oil preserves both flavor and color
