Wild Nettle Bread
Bread is one of my favorite things to make when I have the time and every spring, I try to make these Wild Nettle Bread rolls. When I make this bread, I tend to make a morning of it – I take a basket and some thick gloves and I pick some wild nettles. Once I bring them home, I pour boiling water over them to remove the sting. Once drained, I choose 6 big leaves for the top of the rolls and I discard the stems and chop the leaves. I always make these rolls to accompany my Wild garlic & nettle soup.
This recipe is quite easy to make too. It’s pretty straightforward two rise bread dough, with nettle leaves to add character and colour. Once the dough has risen for the second time, brush each of the rolls with beaten egg. Place a nettle leaf on top of each roll and brush again with the egg to ensure the leaf sticks. Bake in the oven and enjoy!
