    1      lb            Sorrel
    3      oz            Butter
                         Large onion, chopped
    2      T             Flour (heaped)
    2 1/2  l             Stock
    2      T             Breadcrumbs
                         Salt and pepper
    2                    Egg yolks
  150      ml            Cream
   Wash the sorrel well and chop it up.  Heat the butter in a saucepan and
   just soften the sorrel and onion in it.  Shake the flour over the
   vegetables and mix well.  Let it cook for about 1 minute.  Meanwhile bring
   the stock to the boil, then add to the pan.  Add the breadcrumbs, season
   to taste, and bring to the boil, then simmer for about 1 hour covered.
   (It can be liquidized at this point, but needn't be.)  Beat the egg yolks
   with the cream and add a little of the hot soup to the mixture, stirring
   well;  then add gradually to the soup pot, stirring well, over the heat,
   but being careful not to let it boil.
