Wild Cooking: Nettle, Hogweed & Ground elder Pesto
Urtica dioica, Heracleum sphondylium & Aegopodium podagraria PESTO Collect the leaves of nettle, ground elder and hogweed in the wild :) Put water and distilled vinegar in a big bowl and soak the leaves for about five minutes to disinfect. Drain and mix the leaves in a blender. Add cloves of garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and salt (or celery salt). I would add an avocado for extra creaminess... Blend blend blend - while listening to "Young Folks" I know it's tempting to eat like this, but better if refrigerated ;-) ENJOY!
