I've been meaning to do a post on Nettle since we moved here and E found a little patch of it growing down the hill. I was thrilled when he showed me. I picked it throughout the summertime and now have lots of nettle dried and tucked away for wintertime. It dries quickly and easily. I have very high regard for this herb as I think it cures (or prevents) a number of ailments as well as giving a constant source of nourishment to a body. It is full of vitamins and minerals and doles them out in a very balanced way.
plant fertilizer, in smoothies, cooked in soup and on pizza (or anywhere you would use spinach). We've tried it juiced with fresh apples. Delicious...and delightfully green. I've got nettle seed salt in the cupboard. Nettle beer in the pantry.
health benefits of nettle and how to prepare the infusion. I would urge everyone to give this wonderful plant a try.
