Spinach with Caramelized Onions, Pine Nuts, and Dried Apricots
Why This Recipe Works
We investigated blanching, steaming, microwaving, and wilting when developing a great spinach recipe, and we agreed that wilting was the most straightforward method. To wilt the leaves in our spinach recipe, we placed them, still a little damp from washing, into a pot with a small amount of hot fat over medium-high heat and covered the pot. The water clinging to the leaves was all that was required to cook them, breaking down the huge volume of raw leaves to a manageable quantity of cooked spinach in just three to five minutes.
