Vivarini – Ortica 20 g
- We associate nettle as a weed, but it is a plant with many qualities and uses. It is used as an ingredient in teas and yerba mate, as well as an addition to a variety of dishes.
We associate nettle as a weed that stings the skin when touched and leaves sore marks. It is found almost all over the world and, as it turns out, has been widely appreciated for its remarkable qualities. One of the best-known uses of dried nettle leaves is as an ingredient in teas. Nettle has an herbal taste and a characteristic smell that is somewhat reminiscent of hay. Raw and dried nettle leaves can also be added to salads, soups, sauces or other dishes, adding an interesting flavour and nutritional value.
