1/2 of a 5-gallon bucket nettles
6 cups water or stock
Lots of garlic
Salt, pepper, and tabasco to taste
Simmer all ingredients. After about 15 minutes, add garlic and onion, then simmer 5 minutes more. Pulse or puree in blender. Optional: add a blob of butter to the pot.
Infinitely variable to individual preference!
We thank Brenda for this recipe, which is her favorite nettle recipe.
