  3. Hmm….nettle tisane. One to try once, I think, just to see! To me nettles are a bit like wasps, I can’t envisage planting them- but now I have read of all the goodies in the leaves, perhaps I should reconsider, Tandy!

    • I would be afraid to plant them – but I would forage for them if they grew close to where I lived 🙂

  9. Nettles appear to be used quite a lot in stuffed pasta in Italian cuisine and I see “les orties” appear in French menus. However, there’s something in the nature of stinging nettles that doesn’t make me want to include them in my diet:)

  10. I’ve always thought of nettles as weeds. Glad to know that these plants which stung me as a child, do have a use. 😉

    • I have tried yarg which is a cheese wrapped in nettles and that was a good use 🙂
