Nettle Soup

Nettle soup is one of my husband’s favourite springtime/summertime soups.  We first started making it a couple of years ago when we went through a ‘foraging’ phase.  I am pleased to say that the phase hasn’t worn off yet.  Just make sure you wash the nettles well and also remember that younger, smaller nettles taste much better than the older larger nettles.  Oh and one more thing, wear gloves when handling nettles! Ingredients 450g potatoes 250g young nettles 75g butter 1 onion chopped 1 garlic clove crushed (optional) 1 tablespoon of olive oil 1 1/2 pints of chicken or vegatable…

Rosehip Syrup

Make your own cake flour substitute – easy! UK version.

Cake flour is a very light and soft flour and it is all to do with the protein content of the flour that makes it cake flour. You will see lots of recipes on the internet that make you weigh out flour and work…

Chloe (my youngest) has great fun making these after school for a quick warming sweet treat 😉 You can even add all the ingredients to a tub or container and take them with you to work – sneaky. Make all your colleagues jealous when you walk in with a homemade chocolate cake that you…
