Harvesting Wild Nettles

This is the time of year for nettles. They grow abundantly in the Pacific Northwest and are one of the earliest available wild greens in the spring.  Pick plants with gloves when they are young and harvest only the tops. Nettles are safe to eat after they have been blanched for several minutes.  They're practical to make with pasta because you can use the boiling water for both.
