How to make NETTLE TEA
The First shoots of the young Nettle make a refreshing tea-like drink.
Nettles are also a good natural source of Iron, Calcium and Folic Acid
Start by picking your nettles, CAREFULLY!! Only use the smaller shoots as the leaves grow bitter with age. It is possible to pick them with a firm steady hand, but safer if you want to use gloves or scissors.
Wash the nettle shoots individually to remove soil and insects.
Place the nettle shoots into a pot and add just enough water to cover them.
In time, you will find a balance that you prefer by using more/less nettles, depending on your own taste.
Boil the water until it becomes a light green (taking a spoonful will show how dark). the longer you leave them to boil, the stronger and more bitter it becomes.
Remove the nettles and place to one side.
Boiled nettles can be eaten with a little salt, much like spinache.
Now serve with sugar, preferably Brown and some sliced lemon.
This is th fun bit the kids will love.
When you add the sliced Lemon, the Tea changes colour from a dark green to a bright pink.
Now sit back and enjoy.
