    How I hated nettles as a kid but I would love to get my revenge back on them, unfortunately I live in a country where they are not so prolific as the UK but i’m going to find them and soup them like you have ;0)

    Are you in New Zealand? I don’t remember coming across too many nettles there. Maybe I was too dazzled by the other things – like feijoas, lemons and olives – growing in my garden. Don’t think I really missed the nettles!

    Thanks for that beautiful healthy recipe. It’s nice to get a reminder that some of the best ingredients are sitting out in the garden or even in a friend’s garden!

    I have to say there’s a lot of satisfaction if it’s your garden that you’re denuding of nettles!
