    There is more than one species of nettle, and some have fewer stingers than others. Varieties with fewer stingers would be the ones I would want for eating purposes because they are easier to handle.

    I am considering saving the blanching water to drink as a tonic. Thoughts??

    Gorgeous soup, very balanced flavors. I made this vegan by using earth balance butter, broth made from veggie base and a bit of cashew cream I keep on hand on the refrigerator. Two of us ate it all in a couple hours! The nettles have passed for the season, I look forward to making it again next year!

    Thank you for the recipe, Elise. I first tried nettle soup during a trip to Point Reyes, and then I moved away from CA and hadn’t come across it since. Yesterday I saw fresh nettles in the grocery store here in KY and decided to bring them home and make soup. Your recipe turned out perfectly.

    advise fore stings from nettles, brake stems open and rub on stings, then no more ouch. Yes it works.
