Wild nettles are also known as stinging nettles, and for good reason — notice they're safely tucked into bags at the farmers market! The greens are covered in tiny hairs that cause a sharp stinging sensation when you handle them raw. But don't let that deter you; a quick blanch or sauté takes the sting out, and allows to you blend them into a pesto or use them atop a homemade pizza.
