    Seriously, pick then with gloves as well as washing/preparing them. Once they are cooked they are fine. It's normally best to pick them earlier on in the year when you get younger leaves - if they are too old they get a bit stringy.
    I ate them raw in the pesto.
    Apparently the blender action somehow makes it edible, but we handled them with gloves beforehand.
    It was very good.

    I think all you guys are nuts, personally. I gotta have my soy and corn in everything.

    Soy and corn. Soy... And corn. Corn. Soy and corn. Every box on the shelf must have soy and corn. Soy and corn. Goy and porn. Soycorn.

    (as in, 20 meters worth of 24 can pack walls. Like, literally, they build walls with the brick style packages.).

    Form a ring with your fingers on the bottom of the stem and pull the plant through. That brakes the bristles without hurting you (they all are pointing upwards).

    You feel good about serving them Annie's brand easy mac? It's mostly the same thing--carbs and powder--only the POWDERED NEON CHEESE AGGREGATE is a little more "natural". It's still crap.

    Yeah I've never understood the appeal of mac n cheese.. it's macaroni with yellow paste.. it's not cheese. There's no like.. sauce or vegetables or anything good about it.

    I was with some friends at a fairly pricey restaurant and someone ordered a "fancy" mac n cheese; that i really didn't get.

    Granted it had Gruyère, but my foie gras was only a buck or two more.
    Screw that.

    Nettles were also the original ingredient of beer before hops, you can still buy it but its expensive, or make it yourself.

    I've always been impressed with the food quality in Slough, not in the least because its a post apocolyptic town where all social order has broken down and people often resort to cannibalism.

    And thats the posh part.
