Not quite sure what to do with a glut of spinach a few years ago, I discover a recipe in Nigel Slater’s Tender Vol.1 for a variation on Sag Aloo. This uses homegrown potatoes, onions, garlic, chilli and spinach with a few shop bought spices.
Tastes delicious, freezes really well so always make a double batch.
I to buy for our sheep-shearing feast? Three pound
of sugar, five pound of currants, rice,–what will
this sister of mine do with rice? But my father
hath made her mistress of the feast, and she lays it
on. She hath made me four and twenty nose-gays for
the shearers, three-man-song-men all, and very good
ones; but they are most of them means and bases; but
one puritan amongst them, and he sings psalms to
horn-pipes. I must have saffron to colour the warden
pies; mace; dates?–none, that’s out of my note;
nutmegs, seven; a race or two of ginger, but that I
may beg; four pound of prunes, and as many of
raisins o’ the sun.
