|Today, I made nettle for the first time.
Nettle is often vaunted for its rich nutrients: http://www.livestrong.com/article/350785-stinging-nettles-nutrition/.
I'm sharing as it struck me by its taste, rather.
I found it strongly flavorful in a pleasant way.
In short, delish.
Several ways to make it: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2012/mar/30/nettle-recipes-hugh-fearnley-whittingstall, for example.
Personally, I go for KISS: water-sauted it, then garnished with raw butter off-flame. Made a great breakfast with some beef on the side.
I discarded the stems, but I do wonder whether they, too, could be cooked.
Tearing the leaves off was time-consuming.
It is, eh... nettlesome, so, gloves and all that till it's disarmed.
At meals only eat.
