Its been a long time

Hello nettle fans! it has been a long time since this blog has stretched its legs!  Hibernation of almost a year!!
Here is a simple recipe (aka guideline) for a spring treat.

Japanese Knotweed Slaw

few spring shoots of Japanese knotweed
a little shredded cabbage- napa or savoy ( or carrots!)
handful wild herbs- like fennel, lemonbalm, mint, and/or sorrel
an apple
apple cider
lemon, lime or vinegar
fish sauce
chili oil or salad oil

Peel knotweed stalks and slice thinly on diagonal. Place in a bowl and toss with cabbage and herbs. Cut apple in slices or dices and add to bowl. Drizzle cider, citrus juice or vinegar, a bit of fish sauce, and a bit of oil of choice over slaw to taste! Toss and serve.
