"Brännässlan, a classic. Dilute the leaves simmered in a creamy soup served with a ägghalva is a culinary experience like this in the spring – think of at least a part. It is now, when the sweet smånässlorna starting to look up, you should head out and pick leaves, don't wait until they get big and rough. The characteristic brännässlan is easy to spot, and grows in everything from dikesrenar to the shrubbery."
