Andrew Appleby: A Wild Thing a Day 2

I have light fresh vegetable soup for my Pottery lunch.

I’m going to pull ground elder from around my roses, chop it roughly and add it at the last simmer.

This will give a nutty crunch to it. I saw some lovely wee nettles coming up, so these will be for a cup of tea!

Anyone wish to join me?

  1. You’ve found a use for ground elder! You deserve a medal!
    A nettle story……………when I was a little girl, my Dad used to take me for walks up through Heaton Woods – teaching me about what we saw along the way – to visit his friend who made nettle beer. My memory is of big, shallow earthenware dishes, in a cool room, with the brew in them, fermenting. Having walked up through the woods, we’d sit outside and have a drink of the nettle beer ( probably would be frowned upon today – giving a small girl beer – I don’t think it did me any harm).
    I was told that it was good for me – good for my blood.
    I don’t know if it was, but it’s a lovely memory, sparked by your mention of nettle tea.
    Nature’s harvest – and it’s good for you, too.
