Nettle Soup


There is no definitive receipt for nettle soup, but most now include a base of potato and chicken stock.

Original Receipt from ''The Household Encyclopedia' 1859

NETTLE SOUP or Kail: Have water on the fire with a little clarified dripping, butter, the stock of roast beef, bones, or any other stock, cut up young nettles, put them into it and mix one or two handsful of oatmeal perfectly into it. Let it simmer on the side of the fire

For other receipts, see nettles...
