Stinging nettle schnapps - based on fresh, young nettle leaves and stems - has a pleasant bitter, aromatic and characteristic taste. The colour is red-brown.
Serve with pork, beef, smoked and marinated herrings, smoked salmons, vegetables, salads, and dishes with rice, mushrooms or pasta.
Or use the schnapps in tea, soups, sauces, stews - or any other dish where you would normally use fresh or dried stinging nettles.
Excellent as appetizer or after-dinner drink.
