    My mother-in-law makes nässelsoppa every spring and I really look forward to it. There is a patch of nettles in the woods behind their home along the Swedish coastline and she has found that if she cuts them back she gets a second growth suitable for soup making. Mmmmmm. She always cuts a hard boiled egg in half and sets it in the top of the soup. I love the stuff. I’m hoping to post about it when the nettles arrive, but alas, I have about 3 months to wait. 🙁

    The nettles here in central MS are up but they are purple-ish right now, so I’m not so sure it would be as beautiful as the bowl you have there.

    That’s purty! I’ll be making a version of this for my family and also for a Swedish friend. I think I’ll use the lingcod I caught last year.

    Also, I’m going to add nettles to a pheasant soup I cooked down and froze. The pheasant is from that same field.

    Nettle soup? hmmmmmmmm. The color alone has me swooning in delight… almost. I can’t get past the idea of ingesting nettles… voluntarily. Are these pesky plants less irritating as youngsters in Spring?

    Wonderful color! Had no idea nettles were edible. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, what a color! It’s worth trying the recipe just for that alone…

    You mean to say blend the fish along with the nettles? I’ve never heard of that, so I’m doing a double take right now 🙂
    I’ve got some hake loins(bad textured fish in my opinion, at least when raw)….they might do well for blending if the soup’s really meant to be blended.

    Thanks Hank for the clarification 🙂
    I’ve got some nettle(actually a LOT) to use up. First application will be soup now. Yum!
