Get your gloves on to forage for wild plants like nettles - once cooked they have a spinach or cabbage flavour
Want to see what this recipe costs at different supermarkets? Compare in one place here:
This is a different plant from the stinger, but gets its name because, although the leaves look the same, they don’t sting. They have either white or purple edible flowers, and can be cooked in the same way as stingers.
These grow in abundance and are best eaten before they flower in late May. Wear gloves to save yourself getting stung – I find that a pair of washing-up gloves gives you lots of control over your picking, as well as shielding the top of your arms if you’re in a T-shirt. Wash the nettles well before cooking.
