Also known as Urtica dioica, Urticae herba, Stinging Nettle, Common Nettle, Grosse Brandnetel, Grande Ortie, Ortiga, and Grande Ortica.
Nettle’s culinary uses may surprise you. We add it to soups, stews, and sauces, as a great way to add extra “greenery” for picky eaters. It’s often used as a tea, though we prefer it mixed with peppermint for flavour.
There are many recipes that can be found online for using Nettles, including Nettle soup, Nettle pesto, Nettle pie, Nettle Aloo, Nettle pasta, Nettle sorbet, and Nettle pudding, just to name a very few.
