We did this soup in cookery class in secondary school (which for me was last century, not the prehistory ha ha) and I remember it was quite delicious! Have been wanting to make it myself.

If you're using stinging nettles for cooking, you're using the wrong kind. There is a variety of nettle that has few or no stingers on them. That is the one you want to use. You can buy seed for that variety from some seed catalogs and grow your own. I wouldn't be too eager to harvest wild nettles, then you most probably will get stung.

We use wild stinging nettles (picked with gloves!) for soup all the time. Cheap, easy, healthy and delicious - one of my kids' favourite meals! Looking forward to trying this to show them an historical version of something so familiar.
