This is a great way to liven up any spring / summer BBQ, I guarantee that these will be a talking point with your guests.

The earthy flavour of the nettle works really well with the sweetness of the beef and the light mustard ‘kick’ of the Jack by the hedge. Plus if you are a novice forager, the ingredients are really easy to find and identify.
