So, what is nettle?

Nettle is a highly nutritious and versatile plant that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and culinary practices. Its leaves and stems are covered in tiny stinging hairs that can cause a painful rash when touched, but once cooked or dried, nettle is safe to consume. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making it a popular choice for teas, soups, and sauces. Nettle has a slightly earthy and grassy flavor with a subtle hint of bitterness, adding depth and complexity to any dish. Whether you're looking to boost your immune system or experiment with new flavors, nettle is a must-try ingredient.
