Both wood nettle (Laportea canadensis) and stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) are an excellent tasting as well as medicinal green. They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and taste great as a tea, or green incorporated into any food. They have stingers which give a rash if you bang into them without awareness, but with careful movement they wont hurt much, and actually cause a histamine healing response which reduces stagnation and inflammation. The stingers go away when dehydrated or cooked. Heres a video on how to harvest them! With love and care!
