    Lucy Burnett's Note:

    Don't worry - they don't sting when cooked! Nettles are very nutrient rich and of course - free! Don't gather them beside a busy road where they will have been contaminated by traffic fumes - we pick them in our garden. If you keep cutting them from springtime you get a regular supply of fresh leaves. Though we stop using them into summer as they seem to get rather insecty!

      Delicious! I used small nettles growing in our garden - still managed to get stung through the gloves! My son had it unblended whilst Dave & I blitzed ours up. Very successful and we'll be making this a lot. Many thanks!

      Nice soup. I did blanch the nettles in a seperate pot of boiling water before adding to the rest. I also used cows milk. Thanks for the recipe.
