    Harvested a second batch of stinging nettles. If you people haven't tried this delectable green I urge you to give it a go. Expand your horizons, you can't dine much finer. Enjoy the hunt!

    I pinch off the top whirl, the younger the plant the more tender. I leave the leaves on the stem and cook and eat the whole thing, they are that tender. If you are harvesting for the first time you might want to don some surgical gloves because the plant can be very irritating. Don't worry the stinging is short term and is eliminated during the cooking process. You can cook them like any fresh greens.
    I saute onions and garlic (and sometimes a long hot pepper), Then after a bit I throw in a can of spicy diced tomatoes. I then start throwing in the nettles, you need a lot, they reduce to almost nothing. If it gets too dry I refresh the pan with chicken stock, you need the steam to cook the nettles. Salt and pepper, Viola! or Bam! what ever they say! Serve as a side dish ( they are great with fish) or scoop them up with Pita bread. I make a great nettle dish and I'm a terrible cook, even my wife raves about them. Bon appetite!
