Catchtail Comments:
Based on a friends suggestion, we have made a very tasty cleavers pesto; I will try to reproduce the recipe here in the future! You may well know cleavers from the little stickies (as in picture) that it leaves on your socks, clothes, pets, but this really is also a wonderful remedy!
