Stinging Nettle Soup

This stinging nettle soup seems to have that almost magical quality that it cures my hay fever (seasonal allergies) with just one "dose" every few months.

2 cups water
1 veggie bouillon
1 pat of butter
1/4 onion
colander full of stinging nettle tips.

Bring water to boil .
Add butter, bouillon, onion and stinging nettles to water in that order. Be careful not to get stung, although that may be therapeutic in its own right.

Remove from flame and pour into blender
Gradually bring blender up to speed and blend for 5 minutes.

Pour into cups or soup bowls and enjoy

My seasonal allergies come to a halt within minutes of eating the above and do not come back for weeks.
