Carolina Fresh Spinach in Cream (1950)

  • 3 lbs young tender spinach
  • 1 heaping tbspn butter
  • 1 tbspn flour
  •  1 tbspn finely grated onion
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare spinach by washing carefully and discarding all tough stems. Throw spinach into a kettle of boiling water and boil 3 minutes. No longer!

Remove from fire and drain. In a heavy pan, put butter. Shake on it the flour. Blend well. Add spinach, grated onion, cream, salt, and pepper. 

Heat thoroughly and serve immediately. This is equally good if sour cream is used in place of whipping cream. Serves 8.
