This food item REQURES the latest version of my custom food enabler

In this pack we have both a harvestable nettle plant and a nettle soup. Nettle soup is something that has lost fashion in recent years, but used to be extremely popular due to the believed health benefits of nettle soup. Today the soup is consumed in Scandinavia, Iran, Ireland, Eastern Europe, and many more places to varying degrees and varying recipes.

Notes (Food):
- It has all three meal sizes (8 servings, 4 servings and single serving)
- Vegetarian-safe.
- Optional EA potato, onion, carrot, icemunmun leek and my nettle from this pack (recipe can still be cooked without)
- Appears on Restaurant Menu under Appetisers

Found in Cook Custom Food > Make Desserts

Notes (Plant):
- Harvestable in all seasons.
- Both are suitable for vertical planting
- Found in decorative plants in the catalogue
- Can be used in recipes (tagged as herbs, for food modders I have left the object IDs of my plants here for your convenience)!

Found in Decorative > Indoor Plants

Please let me know if you run into any issues!

Thank you so much for your your nettle/soup! It's simply great to have it! Cooked nettles as a vegetable are indeed very tasty!

Maybe there should be an interaction about gloves - tongues aren't the only things that nettles can sting - I have been stung in the woods on my hands and arms quite often. Harvesting nettles without a bad idea.

I am aware of that don't worry.

I just thought it'd be funny if your sim got a moodlet for eating them, which would be a very silly thing to do. Unfortunately the animation for harvesting doesn't really include a way to make them add gloves while they're doing it, so I just imagine they pick them carefully, which you can do.

Thanks! It's the perfect plant for those secluded off-grid lots. No pressure, but do you have any plans to add a nettle tea? It's what I'm more familiar with and it'd be great for the simple living challenge.
