Just experienced stinging nettle behind Day's place. The leaves were amazingly irritating to the back of my hand, but the redness and burning are already dissipating just minutes later. I rubbed the deeply serrated leaf between my hands until it looked "steamed" and then ate it. Quite tasty, but I can't describe the flavor in terms of anything else I've ever eaten.
