#3 in what are nettles good for? nettle soup.
I cooked nettles last year and found they were horrible.. now I realise the trick is to only pick young nettles, and to only pick the tips. a bit tedious, and gloves are mandatory, but they are free.. and free is my favourite price. There are lots of different recipes out there, but I made my own, along my usual soup making methods, keeping it fairly simple. It’s a winner – really very nice.
Also have bottled some nettle beer.. but it needs a few more days before sampling.. but it does look surprisingly promising.
