Recipe Detail Serves: 4 5 minutes + 2 days Prep Time, Cook Time
Into a 1 quart canning jar crumble dried nettles, enough to cover the bottom of the jar. Fill the jar with boiling water, and let it sit to cool.
The "elixir," or tea, will appear golden-green at first. When cool enough, put the jar into the refrigerator for a day or two. When the elixir turns emerald green, it's ready.
Strain and serve over ice. It is delicious plain, sweetened, or in a goblet with a dash of salt.
