Stinging Nettle Scones

It always delights me that stinging nettles with their vicious sting can be tamed and made into something delicious. Nettle soup tastes as though it should be doing you good, sautéed nettles even more so. But warm nettle and cheese scones, spread with butter is a completely different matter.

Tempted? Here’s the recipe for Stinging Nettles Scones.

    1. I’m sure your scones are delicious Jane. I was told the trick is to get them from bowl to oven as quickly as possible with no kneading or endless rolling out.

  1. Hello dear Anne from the far south coast of New South Wales, Australia. Saw you’d commented on Jane’s blog recently and realised it has been a long time since I popped in to your lovely blog. I hope you are keeping safe and well. Peter’s family are in the north of England, so we’re hearing lots of news from them about life in lockdown. Your nettle scones look and sound delicious. Not sure where I could get hold of stinging nettle here… but I do have memories of being bitten on the backside one time when we stopped by the roadside on a German autobahn. Very embarrassing and painful. All the best. Kind regards, Liz (retired Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things blog). x

    1. Good to hear from you Liz 🙂 We do a lot of walking and I’ve had a similar experience with stinging nettles! They’re much better in a scone.
