Despite Nettle’s slightly unpopular reputation from its sting, they are an extremely nutritious superfood! They also are said to help with seasonal allergies if eaten or drank as tea. Use fresh or dried as tea, sauté as you would spinach, blend into pesto, or freeze until later! Cooking or blending deactivates sting. Best if harvested when below knee height and before seeds form. Perennial. Will re-seed and spread.
