Wild nettles, often overlooked due to their prickly demeanor, are a hidden treasure in the world of foraged foods. These vibrant green plants, while humble in appearance, are bursting with flavor, nutritional benefits, and medicinal properties. A staple in traditional herbal medicine, nettles offer a unique culinary experience for those daring enough to harness their potential.

Medicinal Properties

The verdant world of Wild Nettles has graced traditional medicine cabinets and kitchens for centuries. Our meticulously harvested Wild Nettles offer a unique blend of flavor, nutrition, and healing properties, bringing the essence of nature directly to your table.

Nettles are renowned for their health benefits, which span from reducing inflammation to alleviating hay fever symptoms. Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as minerals like iron, potassium, and magnesium, nettles are a natural detoxifier and boost overall health. They are also believed to support kidney health and aid in the management of arthritic pain and eczema.

Warnings: Individuals taking blood thinners or water pills should consult with a healthcare provider before consuming nettles due to their high vitamin K and diuretic properties.


Wild Nettles carry a fresh, green aroma reminiscent of spinach with a hint of earthiness. Their flavor is rich and grassy, with a slightly bitter note that complements a wide range of dishes. When cooked, nettles lose their sting and transform into a tender, spinach-like leaf with a more robust flavor.

Preparation Techniques: To safely enjoy nettles, blanching is the most common preparation method. Simply boil them for a few minutes to remove the sting, then use as you would spinach. Nettles can be made into teas, soups, pestos, and more.

Nettle Soup


  • 2 cups of blanched nettles (from about 1 pound of fresh nettles)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cream or coconut milk for serving (optional)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cooking until soft.
  2. Add the potatoes and vegetable broth, bringing to a boil. Simmer until the potatoes are tender.
  3. Add the blanched nettles, cooking for another 5 minutes.
  4. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve hot, with a drizzle of cream or coconut milk if desired.
