    1. In a pan of boiling water, cook the spinach for just a few minutes until vibrant in colour, wilted and tender. Drain well and press between two plates to remove any excess water. Rub through a sieve or muslin to form a purée.
    2. In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the spinach purée. Cook for a few minutes then add the cream and heat through, do not boil. Season to taste and finish with a pinch of nutmeg.

    It's a simple side dish, but a very tasty one. Always goes down well. Just be sure to make plenty.  -  22 May 2015
