Creamed Spinach with Golden Raisins as an option!

Such a simple dish. If you like spinach, and I understand if you don't, but I'm just suggesting that if you do....... you may like this easy recipe. I certainly do!

Creamed Spinach:

2 1/2 pounds of fresh spinach
1 C heavy cream
1 tsp flour
3 TBS butter, melted
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 C fresh grated parmesan cheese (this is the real stuff, not the cheese in a jar)!
salt and pepper to taste

Wash the spinach.
Toss it in a large skillet without patting it dry.
Cook it for about 5 minutes.
Drain it.
Squeeze out the excess water.

In a small bowl:
whisk well.
Set aside.

In the large skillet:
Melted butter
Cook on low for a few minutes.
Sprinkle with nutmeg and stir well.
Season with salt and pepper.
Cover and simmer on low for about 5 minutes.
Stir in the cream.

At this stage, I often add 1/2 C of golden raisins!

Continue cooking on very low heat, simmering for about 20 more minutes.
Stir occasionally.

Transfer to a serving plate.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese just before serving!

Peace in the Kitchen!
