Buttered Spinach

From The Modern Family Cookbook

Wash 2 lbs. spinach very thoroughly through several cold waters; if necessary wash each leaf separately to remove all sand and grit. Discard bad leaves and any tough stems. Put spinach in 3-qt saucepan, add 1â…“ cups boiling water and 1 teaspoon salt and cook 5 to 10 minutes or until just tender, turning occassionally. Drain thoroughly and pour melted butter over spinach. Serve immediately. 5 servings.

My note: First: I am amused at several cold waters. It makes me picture chilling some Perrier, Poland Spring, Clearly Canadian and some Evian before washing the spinach. Second: Pre-washed bagged spinach is one of the best inventions of the last century. Third: I love spinach but am not fond of buttered spinach. My favorite real spinach is spinach lightly sauteed with garlic, tamari and lemon juice. How do you like your spinach?
