March: Stinging Nettles

Where they came from: During the winter market's last month, with Spring beginning to, well, spring, it's fun to be a little adventurous and try stinging nettles.

Ideas for preparing and eating them: They're great in soup, with lentils or by themselves, and Kelly made a great-looking risotto from them as well.
