While I have been very busy on different works around my house I haven´t had much time to do any "bushcraft activities" lately so I thought to eat some wild edibles while bbq:ing on my backyard. So I collect some stinging nettles around my house far end from road and cut them small into my cast iron wok to fry with little bit of oil (frying or fast boiling eliminate those acid spikes).
After frying they shrinked a lot and were good to eat. Stinging nettles were too grown up already and had too strong and woody shaft. Leaves were great.
Later I collected more leaves to make tea out of it and I also found some rasberry leaves to add some sweetness.
I kept (bit crushed) leaves on hot water around 30 minutes and get great fresh and strong drink, highly recommended!
Stinging nettles are very traditional plant for food and it´s very nutricious and healthy even more than spinach and it could be used same way.
Stinging nettles also have very strong fibers for cordage making (haven´t tried that one yet)
