According to this blog all I do nowadays is cooking. And exploring the kitchens of the world. That is so not the case. But I do love to cook and I find it a rather easy way to be creative. Quick and instant satisfaction.
Anyway, this is my first gnocchi try. At the stable today while waiting for the farrier to finish I picked some nettles. Inspired by this fellow I used the nettles to make gnocchi. It wasn't easy and I used a combination of at least three recepies to get it right. The main problem was the amount of flour. Too little, the gnocchis fell apart, too much, they came out too hard. In the end some of them turned out really good and I will definitely try again.

  1. My kids and husband hate gnocchi, which I love, but never make. The trick is to mush the potatoes and make the gnocchi mixture while the potatoes are still piping hot. Buon appetito!
