Wood sorrel (Oxalis acetosela) is a different plant from either garden or French sorrel (Rumex acetosa). Wood sorrel is in the family Oxalidaceae, which includes over 900 species of plants. It is famous for quenching thirst and cooling high fevers. It is an edible herb that is best eaten fresh from the garden. It is used in salads, soups, sauces, and syrups. It also makes a wonderful lemon tasting drink called “Dry Lemonade.” The drink is made from the powder of the crystallized salts of the plant mixed with powdered sugar. You just add water and voila! Instant lemonade without lemons!
