A colorful, highly accessible guide to the healing and culinary uses of nettle, a protein-packed wild plant that is a favorite of foragers and herbalists.

Nettle Power is a fascinating exploration of the many uses of nettle for food, medicine, and fiber. A plentiful wild plant with a long history of use by both European and Native American herbalists, nettle helps soothe skin conditions, strengthen bones, increase milk production in lactating mothers, restore the nervous system, purify the blood, and boost the immune system, among its many benefits. The plant's sting is easily neutralized by blanching and author Brigitte Mars shares a range of recipes for using the nutrient-dense green leaves as a tasty substitute for spinach or chard in salads, soups, and main dishes, along with healing recipes for teas, tinctures, juices, and elixirs. Colorful illustrations and curious facts and lore make this a highly browsable and useful handbook for foraging, herb, and natural health enthusiasts.
