Nettle pesto

Nettle pesto recipe

Summary: Here is an original pesto: nettles picked directly from the forest on a Sunday morning! I just finished my Nettle Pesto, I will be tasting it in a good week. But of course I couldn’t resist dipping a finger in the pot and already love it. With this nettle pesto, you will surprise your guests, but be careful during the preparation, gloves are almost mandatory, otherwise the nettles can repel us and call us to order just in case. I took as much pleasure in harvesting the forest from my nettles (well I admit it was a bright sun, that also helps) as in preparing this nettle pesto (surely because the quantities were reasonable). I am waiting for my son who comes back from vacation to taste this beautiful nettle pesto, I will grate Parmesan and put some pink berries for fun.
