So, what is nettles?

Nettles are a wild, leafy green plant with a rich history of use in traditional medicine and cooking. The prickly leaves of the nettle plant are known for their stinging properties when touched, but once cooked or dried, they lose their sting and become a nutritious and delicious addition to many recipes. Nettles are high in iron, calcium, and vitamins A and C, making them a great choice for anyone looking to boost their immune system or improve their overall health. They have a slightly earthy, nutty flavor that pairs well with pasta, soups, and pestos.
