Eneas Dallas, in 1877 wrote in a book called Kettner’s Book of the Table about the sources of Jullien cut. He was interested in a recipe for Jullien soup. The recipe included the vegetables cut into long strips or straws. Besides this, the Woodsorrel soup’s recipe also has a Trinity cut on a leaf made by the two cuts on each leaf. It was significant or was related to some Christians or superstitious cooks.
Woodsorrel is known by so many different names in different parts of Europe. In French, Woodsorrel is known as La petite Roseville and surely. It was known as stubwort or cuckoo’s meat in England. Among many other unusual names, it was also called Alleluia or Allelujah in some parts of the world.
