I love Estonian Summer. everything is green and flourishes and smells. White and short nights and long warm days.
And finally, you can see the sun 🙂
Of course, there have been records, very warm and very cold summers. But in average summer temperature is +23-25 C degrees.  And after few days of warm days starts whining…. too hot 🙂

The Estonian climate is very humid, which means that our warm feels very warm and our cold feels very cold.

As everywhere, Estonians eat and drink during summertime food, which does not need long preparation time and time in front of the hot stove.
There are few Estonian favourite Summer Dish

Different salads and grilled meat and fish. For example Chicken In Yoghurt Marinade

I would say that Cottage Cheese is one of the most popular Summer Dish. Estonians combining it with new potatoes, herring and vegetables. Very easy to prepare, healthy and delicious. Find from my blog recipes with Cottage Cheese.
For example Cottage Cheese and Potato Salad

When the vegetables start to mature, combine new fresh potatoes, cabbage and carrots and peas… to cook amazing New Vegetable Soup

nettlefritters (20)

Nettles are very important and has been used in Estonian folk medicine centuries.
Folk wisdom teaches that nettle contains vitamins C and K, B vitamins, as well as minerals like calcium, magnesium and iron, to name a few
The nettle takes away fatigue, abdominal pain and water swelling, reduces and stops bleeding, reduces the appearance of diabetes mellitus

And did you know: nettles contain vitamin C 2.5 times more than the lemon (660 mg%).

But of course, you can use any weed to replace nettles. Goutweed taste like carrots and celery. Nettles are a little bit sweet. And wood sorrel is sour.
Nettles keep 1-2 minutes in the boiling water. Goutweed and wood sorrel are edible fresh.

NB! Use only young, fresh, new, small weed, growing in the pure environment.
