Stinging Nettles

Despite a rather off-putting name, these spring greens are quite edible and tender. A quick soak is all that is needed to render the nettles sting-free, at which point they are ready to star as a salad ingredient, stand in for basil in pesto or add seasonal freshness to any number of dishes.
