  • Usually gather nettles utilizing work gloves, as well as put on a long-sleeved shirt. Additionally clean and cut nettles wearing rubber gloves.

    The young leaves are the best part of the plant. As soon as the plant flowers, the leaves become bitter and may annoy the bladder as well as kidneys, therefore pick nettles when they’re young as well as sensitive, and harvest just the top four inches of the plant. It may seem a little frightening, yet fresh nettles could be consumed raw. Yet be mindful and make certain to neutralize the formic acid that may sting you. Make use of your teeth, mixer, mortar as well as pestle, or juicer to grind nettle leaves as well as remove their sting.

    Make use of fresh new nettles the next time you are making a green juice or even smoothie. Make use of freshly crushed nettle in soup as well as salad recipes too.

    If you do get stung, make use of scotch tape to get rid of any kind of stingers as well as neutralize the acidic burn by utilizing a simple paste created from smashed nettle leaves (indeed!), jewelweed, dock leaves OR baking soda. In the pinch, vinegar or even urine might help too. You are able to dry nettles for tea or even tinctures either by hanging bunches of it upside down in the cool, dry place, or even with your dehydrator. In any event, clean the leaves soon after harvesting. If utilizing a dehydrator, wear gloves and take away the leaves through the stem. Permit the leaves to air dry for around half an hour or even pat dry along with paper towel.

    Put the leaves within your dehydrator, distributing them on the rack in single rows, making certain to not pile the leaves along with each other. Keep sufficient space in between each leaf so there is great air flow. Dehydrate for eight to ten hours or till the leaves are totally dry (to avoid mold). If required, rotate the tray a couple of times all through dehydrating. Store within an air-tight container till ready to use.
