Homemade nettle tea!

Sorry for the lack of posts – our house has a been a constant stream of illness ever since we came back from our Christmas trip to the UK! It is a combination of us not having any European immunity and the mild winter which hasn’t killed off all the bugs! This week we all have shocking colds, luckily it is the holidays (again!) so at least the kids aren’t missing yet more school.

We are getting more and more interested in natural remedies and with lots of lovely young nettles springing up after all the rain we’ve had the man decided to make some nettle tea! I was a little sceptical and unsure how it would taste but I was pleasantly surprised! Nettle tea is good for a number of health issues, it contains lots of fabulous vitamins and trace minerals and is a great support for the immune system. The man felt much better after we had it – I wasn’t feeling as rotten yesterday to notice a difference – but I’ve just sent him out now to harvest some more!

  1. Très interessant , les miennes sont polluées par les voitures……
    Pensez aux jeunes pousses de pissenlit pour les salades, c’est délicieux avec beaucoup d’ail et comme disent les Français ” ça purge le sang “,
    J’éspère que vous allez mieux et que vous avez des violettes dans le jardin?

    • Not sure what they look like when they are young, not sure we have any or many of the pissenlit (dandelions). I haven’t’ seen any violets either – but maybe they are just the leaves at the moment – we shall have to wait and see!
