Nettles are delicious in many spring recipes — from soups to salads, pizzas, and pastas, pestos, and Nettle Tea. And the health benefits make them a logical choice, too.
Nettle is high in Vitamins A, C and K, as well as several B vitamins. It also is high in minerals and has calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium. It has all of the essential amino acids, polyphenols, and carotenoids. It is an anti-inflammatory herb and has antioxidants.

About Hudson Valley Seed. Co, Accord, New York:
We are a values-driven seed company that practices and celebrates responsible seed production and stewardship. We are best known for our beautiful artist-design seed packs (Art Packs) that appeal to gardeners, gift buyers, and lovers of art and nature. Our Art Packs, most fundamentally, tell stories. We challenge our artists to convey in a manner that is fully their own, the history and meaning of the seed variety contained in each pack. These stories were once integral to traditional societies-stories of seeds were often origin stories for entire communities and peoples, and the lore and beliefs that accumulated around seed varieties reflected the nearly familial way in which gardeners and farmers regarded their crops. Our society is, by and large, no longer connected to plants this way. But we like to think our Art Packs help to stitch our fragmented world back together: useful seeds, evocative art, both equally valuable to our experience of being human.
