Cool new archeological excavation found that bronze age families sat down for a delicious bowl of stinging nettle stew.
Stinging nettle is highly nutrition, and useful. You can use fibres in the stalk to twist rope.
You can also eat the young leaves during the springtime, by drying them or cooking them to get rid of the hairs. It’s a plant incredibly high in iron, so really good for ya! It also helps clean up your blood in the spring time.
In the fall, after the plant has gone to seed, you can gather the leaves, which will be high in silica, and make tea that you can use as a conditioner.
And even better, it grows in every roadside ditch and in riparian areas.
