Eat stinging nettles?
Have you tried using stinging nettles in your cooking? A weed that is packed with vitamins and that is at the top of the list of most useful plants in our garden. Now is the perfect time to pick the thin shoots, before the nettle has had time to grow and become large and woody. Use our soft Glove Basic to avoid burning yourself. Sax Lux also works well when you want to get some of the nice little shots. I usually make a simple pesto on nettles, so good to drizzle over a pasta!
Test my recipe:
- 1 liter of nettles
- 1.5 dl Västerbotten cheese
- 2 dl olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1.5 dl almond, peeled
- Preheat the nettles and squeeze them.
- Run the nettles in a food processor or blender and top up with the other ingredients.
Dilute with oil to just the right consistency. Taste with a little salt.
