Some more about heirloom vegetables …
I love nettle soup. It is really a spring detox soup, and it is delicious !
Try it without fear,…but you need to find clean young nettles, …not along a busy motorway for example…
Kub Or (maggi…you know what I mean)
salt & pepper
4 tablespoons sour cream…less or more
Cook the peeled, chopped potatoes for 10 mins in salted water. Drain.
Wash & chop coarsely the nettles (Only pick the new, young tops,using gloves!)
Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the nettles and stew gently for a few minutes. Add the potatoes and heated stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes or until tender.
When all is soft, cool slightly & purée in a blender, adding seasoning and the sour cream.
