Fresh Stinging Nettles
Nettle has a wondrous healing history of uses. We harvest these nettles in 4" to 10" lengths to be used in cooking, making tinctures, juicing, or infusing.
We pack it in containing 4 individual 1/2# bags. It is unwashed and can be steamed as is or washed with gloves on and then steamed. Once it is steamed, it looses the sting. It can be simple eaten as a green or used in spinach recipes. We use it steamed with other spring greens like kale and spnach .
You can read about the many benifits of nettle to help with chronic health problems in "Healing Wise" by Susan Weed, or "Health through God's Pharmacy" by Maria Treben . You can also make a plant food and compost activator with it. There are excellent recipes in these books.
