First Farmers' Market of 2009

Saturday is our first Farmers’ Market. We will be in Princeton with salad greens, radishes, mint, rhubarb, popcorn, stinging nettle, and Plow Creek Bakery goods. We might have a few strawberries; if so we will limit them to one pint per customer. We hope for larger quantities in a week or so. Market opens at 8:30 A.M. We probably won’t stay until official closing time of 2:00 P.M. so come early.

    Stinging nettle is used as a COOKED green. Handle it with tongs or gloves until cooked. Excellent in lasagna or quiche. It also makes a pleasant tea. It is very, very nutritious, and people make many health claims for it.

    I have always found stinging nettle to be a very painful weed. How is it used as a food stock?

    PS. You have one of the most user-friendly websites on the internet. Thank you for your contribution to vegetable agriculture.
