Nettles are very versatile and can be treated like any fresh greens such as kale, chard, or spinach. Delicious when blanched, you can also add nettle tips to soup, steam them and serve with butter and lemon or toss them raw into your morning smoothie.

Nettle tea is another popular use and is said to help several ailments including eczema, asthma, hay fever and muscle aches and pains.

These young and supple nettle tips have no woody stalk, so they don't need to be stripped – the whole nettle can be used with no labour or wastage.
