Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) - If you have come in to contact with this herb out in the woods, you won't forget the stinging nettle. This herb plant is covered with small hairs that release a painful, stinging chemical when they come into contact with skin. Fortunately, drying or cooking removes the stinging effect of the leaves. Stinging nettle is used in salt-reduced diets and the young shoots are rich in iron. For the best flavor and nutritional content, pick the top 4 to 5 inches of new nettle growth in the spring, before the plants flower.
