Creamed Spinach – Not Out of your Grocer’s Freezer

Pretty much wiped out the spinach in the garden today. Made the following recipe and it turned out pretty good. This recipe came from www.rebeccasgarden.com The brandy and shallots gave it a nice taste and we used half and half in place of the cream.

CREAMED SPINACH

2 pounds cleaned and picked through spinach, dried well several pinches freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 cup minced shallot
1 minced garlic clove
3 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup cream
1/4 cup brandy
1 tablespoon flour mixed with
1 tablespoon butter salt and pepper

Heat the butter in large sauté pan over high heat. Add the shallot, nutmeg, garlic and cook until glassy. Add the brandy and cook until nearly evaporated. Add the flour/butter mixture and cook briefly. Add the cream and bring to a simmer. Reserve to a mixing bowl.

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, wilt the spinach. Reserve to a chopping board and mince the spinach very well by hand.

Combine the two mixtures and heat well over low flame or in a double boiler. Season and serve.

    They claim it is just as good with frozen spinach.

    The elegant bridal headband is holding strong among so many women,
    but what should you want something more unique. Men are
    certainly not that inventive in relation to buying gifts.

    Displaying a candle centerpiece can even be as simple as setting pillar candles
    together with glass candleholders on tall stems at varying heights.

    Also, the very best home coffee machine should fit into perfectly in your kitchen.
    When you need to control the brewing size and also the temperature all you do is just select in
    the standard brewing temperatures of 192 degrees and f or possibly
    a cooler temperature it is possible to select 187 degrees F.

    Coffee names could possibly be the same from brand to brand, but the tastes
    are not.
