Nettle Soup - 1960's (Marguerite Patten Recipe Cards)
For someone that writes about food, has a general preoccupation with culinary matters and mixes with those who have brilliant gastronomic taste, I have very crude food tastes. And the idea of Nettle Soup doesn't really do anything for me, despite the majority of people who I have spoken to over the years who have said how nice it is.
I encourage you to give it a go. If it is nice, tell me and it might encourage me even more to go and pick some and see what happens! Nettles are a free and abundant plant, but be careful you pick from a spot that you know has not been treated with weed killer.
