Nettle Soups – Recipes
Nettles are known for being rich in minerals, tonic, builder of blood, bones, and connective tissue. Wood nettles taste much better than stinging nettles.
Handle raw nettles with tongs or leather gloves. Dried or slightly cooked, nettles are safe to touch. Before cooking, wash nettles until water comes away clear. Cover with cool water, remove with tongs or use sieve. Check to make sure water is clear.
Measuring nettles is a joke. You can cram them tightly into a space, or let them be loose. These recipes are organized around the packaging I’m using to sell them – half pound boxes.
