Forest School

Last week at forest school the children made some nettle nippers using sticks they found in the woods with Kris. Today, they were able to use them to pick the very tops of the nettles without stinging themselves. When we had collected lots of them, we washed them all really carefully. Then we helped Kris to cut up some onions,leeks and carrots and boiled them in our pan over the campfire. When we added the nettles in, they made a sizzling sound! We put lots of nettle tops in but after a couple of minutes they had reduced down a lot! Then Kris used a blender to make the soup smoother and added some cream. We all got to try a bit of the soup with some bread. Most of us thought that it was really yummy!
