The Beauty of Stinging Nettles

"Be not nettled, my friend, at my praise of this useful weed. In Scotland, I have eaten nettles, I have slept in nettle sheets, and I have dined off a nettle tablecloth."
Thomas Campbell, 1837

The stinging nettle plant's roots and stems have been used to make cloth and paper as well as green and yellow dyes. People have been drinking nettle tea for centuries, too.

I won't blog extensively on stinging

nettles because I have a PDF available for you to download. It is an Herb Savvy sent from Frontier Co-op. It includes 3 recipes so I encourage you to print it!
