April is the perfect time of year to pick young and tender nettles are they are beginning to grow. Nettles are full of nutrition and have many health benefits. If you would like to find out just how good for you Nettles are I wrote about it here.
This post also covers all my tips for foraging and picking your own nettles. Including blanching nettles with boiling water for 1-2 minutes to remove their sting!
One of the easiest things to make with nettles is a simple soup this one has just 7 ingredients, and if you don’t have nettles it works just as well with baby spinach, watercress, or other leafy greens too.
Wash the nettle leaves thoroughly and use as you would spinach leaves in cooking.
