Last night, we ate spinach freshly picked from our garden. My husband went out an hour before dinner and came back with a load of freshly picked leaves, which he steamed for just a few minutes. If you’ve never tasted spinach this fresh, then you’re missing a tremendous eating experience. I closed my eyes as I ate each bite, savoring its sweetness.
Soon we will have so much spinach, I’ll have to blanch it and put away in freezer bags for the winter. It won’t taste quite as fresh but it certainly will taste better than anything Popeye managed to toss back to manufacture his strength.
Many folks may not know this, and it might not be polite to mention, but I will. Spinach is a great digestive cleanser. I’m feeling quite refreshed this morning.
We’re off to a great start this gardening season.
How’s your garden growing?
