Thank you so much to all those who joined me on the herb walk around The Racecourse last week – a very enjoyable three and a half hours! It was wonderful to see all the herbs looking so healthy, especially given the terrible winter flooding that turned the area into a lake.
For those who are interested, here’s the super simple recipe for the dip we sampled.
I hope to see you again soon on another herb course!
Nettle and Cleavers Dip
- Generous handful of nettles
- Generous handful of cleavers
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp salt
- 4-5 tbsp crème fraîche or Greek yogurt
- pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
What to Do
Put the nettles and cleavers into a food processor and blend until roughly chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning. Enjoy!
