Greg outlines the Chinese dish, lion's head, which involves bok choy and half-pound meatballs. For something lighter, baby bok choy works well as a side dish. Don't forget to rinse the stalks, where soil will have accumulated. Jon asks, "I wonder how we ever did without it?"</p><p>(Broadcast: <em>The Food Guys</em>, 7/27/14)</p><p></p> Sun, 27 Jul 2014 11:00:00 +0000 Beth Anne Austein 22343 at http://mtpr.org Bok Choy Nettle I http://mtpr.org/post/nettle-i <p>It's not called "stinging nettle" for nothing: if you're going to spend time in a nettle patch, cover up. The hairs on nettle's leaves and stems are miniature hypodermics, waiting to pucture your skin, which - ouch! - stings, then burns, then aches. But on arthritic joints, that sting stimulates, then exhausts, the production of pain messengers to the brain. Nettle leaf soup (cooking neutralizes the sting) has been found to reduce pain and immobility in people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
