Thread Name: BS: Advice on preparing nettles
Subject: RE: BS: Advice on preparing nettles
I agree with Les

Nettles must be young. If you wish to try them at this time of year, only take the very top (and hence young) leaves.

Deckman,

Whilst it may be nice and comforting to think that 'nature' puts swordfern next to nettles for human convenience, it doesn't.

Nature gives no more thought to humans than it does to ants or house flies.
