I try to make nettle soup at least once or twice each year, not least because I've got a huge patch of nettles at the end of the garden.

Tonight was this year's first attempt, using a recipe I hadn't tried before - with celeriac and rice (no potato), based on fish stock and topped with chunks of smoked haddock.

It works pretty well. I have to admit, I wasn't entirely sure about the fish stock to start with but, yep, it works.

The recipe's from the River Cottage fish book, by the way - one of those books that I really ought to use more often. :)

[As for the next batch... I've got a very different recipe in one of Jekka McVicar's books. Nettles with lovage, potatoes, milk, lemon thyme and marjoram... hmm...]
