Something stinging for the littlies.

After making my beer and pesto I still had a lot of nettles left and after reading about a very old Roman recipe for nettle cordial I thought 'why not?'.  Here's a bottle. 

It's kind of sweet but refreshing as well.  I tested it out on some kids who knew it was made out of stinging nettles and they got all giggly and nervous then said "mmm, not bad!".  So I don't know that they loved it, but they didn't say "yuk!".

I also rinsed my hair last night with some of the left over water I had after I had blanched the nettles. I don't know if it's my imagination or not, but it did feel shinier and healthier this morning???  I'll be doing some more testing on others to see if they notice any difference.
