So I made my annual nettle soup last night. Ip iced nettles in the rain and got stung on my fingers through the gloves. Great fun! But here is the soup all cooked up.
And here it is ready to serve with sour cream and crushed red peppers on top.
It is really yummy and worth the effort. We rewatched the last season’s finale of GOT with the soup (Tom had a burrito). Although the recipe is likely not medieval, it feels like it is.
Tonight it gets real medieval.
Remembering from childhood, how nettles would sting, I can’t imagine wanting to eat them. Does the cooking remove the stinging effect?
Yes, it immediately removes the stinging.
