During late spring/ early summer (and I sometimes pick the tops later as well) one tasty soup ingredient is the nettle!

I sometimes have poached eggs and creme fraiche with it, haven’t tried with bacon yet. But this made me really hungry. I think I’ll pick some nettles tomorrow, they are everywhere by now (even though May has been super rainy and actually quite cold, even for Sweden) 😉 between +9 C (48F) to +15 C (52F)
A simple nettle soup
Approximately 1 l (roughly 4 cups) of nettles (rinse and boil, drain and mix) add stock until you get the thickness you want. Season and put your chopped or poached eggs in (I usually poach my eggs in the soup) and serve with creme fraiche
