So you spend a couple of hours pulling up nettles. You’re left with a massive pile of the things, all a bit too wet to burn. Hundreds of kilograms. look:
That’s a five foot high pile of nettles.
Upon showing this picture to people I know on facebook “Make nettle wine” was a suggestion.
“Make nettle soup!” was another. Just how much nettle soup is it possible to want?
My favourite suggestion though, was “Make nettle pesto!” Seriously? Is there anyone on the planet that has a large enough lunacy to want to store three hundred kilos of nettle pesto? What the hell would you do with it all? How much would the olive oil cost?
Please, dear reader, whoever you are – feel free to nip over to our place and take as many nettles as you may wish for. If you don’t like the look of the ready-harvested ones, you can even go and pull up your own. There’s plenty.
