Wild at Heart Nettle Pesto with Garlic

Available all year

  • A fine variation of the Wild Garlic version, this pesto also is sourced from the same nettle beds that pheasants, partridges and deer live and sleep.
  • Great in a variety of dishes from game to sandwiches
  • Jar size 200 grams

Yes this is made with real stinging nettles by Wild at Heart Foods in Kent, but don’t worry, they have picked and cooked them for you, so they no longer sting! Like game meat, nettles have been eaten in this country for thousands of years, and so it’s time to reclaim them as a great food and give them the respect they deserve. They are in fact something of a wild “super food”, rich in vitamins A and C and containing lots of iron, potassium, calcium and even some protein, – and they taste pretty good too!

To compliment the wild nettles in this jar, they have added some tasty garlic, a good splash of lemon juice, cashew nuts, a vegetarian version of Parmesan cheese called Twineham Grange, some rapeseed oil and a pinch of salt
