Roman Style Spinach
* 2 lb spinach
* 3 tablespoons golden raisins
* 3 tablespoons butter
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 1 garlic clove, peeled and bruised
* 1/2 cup pine nuts
Clean the spinach thoroughly, washing it several times in running
water to remove all the gritty soil. Put the spinach into a
saucepan with the water that clings to the leaves. Add a pinch
of salt and cook slowly until the spinach is wilted and quite
soft. Drain, squeeze dry and set aside on a plate.
Meanwhile, soak the golden raisins in lukewarm water for 10
minutes or so. Drain and squeeze dry.
In a wide, shallow pan, melt the butter with the olive oil.
When heated add the garlic and fry gently until colored. Remove
the garlic and add the spinach, pine nuts and golden raisins.
Cook for 5 or 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Taste for salt.
