nettle syrup

There is no herb that follows man with such persistent attachment as the pungent, stinging nettle.

Like no other plant, it heals the soil by converting too much nitrogen and, with its long, creeping roots, prepares the humus for generations to come. It also prepares people for the "most active" time of the year in early spring. A stinging nettle cure really gets your spirits into shape.

For Hippocrates, the most famous doctor of antiquity, nettle was the most important plant for blood purification and that hasn't changed. It helps to avoid anemia and iron deficiency, a vitalizing agent for the liver, pancreas, stomach, intestines and bile.

nettle syrup
25 nettle shoots
30 grams of citric acid
1 liter of water
1 kg organic sugar

Boil the water and let it cool down, put the nettle sprouts in the water overnight, strain after 24 hours, heat the nettle stock with the sugar to 75 degrees and fill in bottles.

Do not leave the shoots in the water for more than 24 hours, otherwise the iron will oxidize, Fe² becomes Fe³.

If you are there in time in spring, the nettle juice is even pink.

Have fun imitating!
