For some reason we have a large patch of nettels in our backyard and in googling to find how best to get rid of I read that nettels are edible. This surprised me as we never considered them as such growing up years ago on the East Coast. I wondered about recipes and lo I came across Kimberley’s recipe for braised w/ gnocchi & nettels. We’ll have to give it a try here in San Diego. I had my 1st braised pork dish on Valentine’s and I have to agree w/ Elizabeth. It was fantastic!
Haha this is a fun way to discover indeed. And a fun way to get rid of the nettles is eating them – why not, they are full of goodness 😉
Can be used for quiches and pastry fillings combined with crumbly cheeses. Makes most delicious pizza topping too.
Oh how interesting. Thank you for your comment!
