These freebies make the perfect alternative to spinach. We have plenty in our garden and they take no effort to cultivate. They are not sprayed with anything and therefore can be considered a great organic nutrient!
I have made soup with them in the past but not today as we have a cauldron of leek,tomato,red pepper and lentil which we have been slurping. So today it is Lasgne Verdi. It does take a little more time than removing it from the packet but we always make our pasta as it is only eggs, flour and water and now pureed nettles. We had a traditional lasgne last night and the excess pasta is drying so it can to be stored for the future.
and this is it!
It requires all the cake cooling racks and a great deal of work top.
We have to get on with using and preserving the results as nettles are best picked by June 1st as after that date they start to get woody and tough.
Try it but you need to be quick!
The Lasange verdi was superb!
