When we cleared out the side garden a few weeks ago, we discovered a patch of stinging nettles growing in one corner.
It was all cut back at the time, but has quickly started popping back up again.
Knowing they were young leaves and uncontaminated with any weedkillers etc I decided to be a bit daring and try cooking with them.
I made the quiche in the usual way. The Nettles were blanched in boiling water for a few minutes, then stared at suspiciously for a few more before I was brave enough to touch them.
Now the question is are we brave enough to try the quiche.....
