DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and drain your spinach.
  • Combine salt and water and bring to a rolling boil.
  • Place drained spinach into the water and bring to a boil.
  • Cover and simmer a few minutes only until tender. You don't want to loose too many vitamins.
  • Drain well and chop.
  • In a small saucepan, an iron skillet works best, melt the butter.
  • Add flour and make a roux. You only want your roux to be a beautiful golden color but not too light.
  • Add minced garlic. Sauté only a moment - Don't brown garlic or it will make your dish bitter.
  • Slowly add part of the milk to make sauce.
  • Put spinach back in the original pan pour your sauce over it.
  • Remember the spinach will give off a little extra water-- don't add too much milk until you know how much more you'll need.
  • Stir over medium heat until it is bubbling.
  • If it is too thick, add enough cream or milk as needed.
  • When thick enough, take off heat and stir in sour cream.
  • Serve.
