All stung up

We're a bit into nettles at the moment. 

Younger Son has done and led courses on foraging and nettles, as well as being everywhere, are a superfood, good for all sorts of things. 

So far we've had ...
nettle and wild garlic omelette
nettle and wild garlic omelette and 
nettle and squash risotto
nettle and butternut squash risotto.

Today YS also made nettle pakoras and a healing balm. Presumably to take away the sting after you've picked your nettles.

They're full of iron, aren't they? I'm still not convinced, though. Perhaps if I concentrated on the fact that they're free...

And they have quite a ... um, sharp taste. But not very strong so not offensive. I write this not having picked any myself yet of course.
