Do you know this fairy tale. About girl, who must, to rescue her brothers, knit a jacket from.. nettles..?
This is a good story about love.
But to exterminate and consume all weed in your garden….. You do not need so extreme solutions 🙂
Just, bake a pie. From weed. Delicious and weeding in the garden gets some very good point 🙂
Rich, savory custard flecked with things like quark and fresh weed baked in a buttery crust,
I do not write how healthy are nettles, wood sorrel, dandelion leaves and goutweed. You can read this from Wikipedia:) But believe me, they are healthy. The first vitamins source in the spring.
Goutweed taste like carrots and celery. Nettles are little bit sweet. And wood sorrel is sour.
Nettles keep 1-2 minutes in the boiling water. Goutweed and wood sorrel are edible fresh.
NB! Use only young, fresh, new, small weed, growing in the pure environment.

Did you know.
Carrot came from Afganistan and original carrot was purple. Orange carrots came later.
I love this easy salad because of how it looks like. Beautiful colors. Fresh vegetables are crunchy and crispy and using stripes make this simpler to eat.
Definitely you can add more different vegetables and combine with dressing and flavours.

In the old times spring meant two good news. At least the grass arises and the cows began to give milk.
So, ancient Estonian spring dishes contain a lot of milk, dairy products and greens.
Goutweed tastes like carrots and celery. Nettles are a bit sweet. Dandelion tastes like honey, but could be little bit bitter. To decrease the bitterness, leave leaves in to the cold salty water to set. And wood sorrel is sour.
Nettles need to be kept in the boiling water 1-2 minutes. Goutweed and wood sorrel are eatable when fresh.
NB! Use only young, fresh, new, small weeds, grown in a pure and clean environment.

This is one very retro dish.
My generation was served Sausage Sauce for dinner at school .
And this was one of the our favourite school lunch dish.
At school the table was already set . Plates were on the tables and food in big bowls.
Who was quicker to run, got a bigger portion 🙂
Today, at home I do this very rarely.
I added tomato pasta, because of better picture:) but you can leave this out. This dish is made from cooked sausage. But you can use frankfurters.
