FROZEN SPINACH BRANDS I’m having great luck with the frozen spinach from Trader Joe’s, few stems, very fresh tasting. I’ve had trouble with the house brand from Schnucks here in St. Louis, even the Birds Eye brand. I’ve learned that it’s best to let frozen spinach thaw in a dish in the refrigerator overnight rather than to defrost in the microwave where it starts to cook and can get tough. You might want to experiment cooking a single gnocchi to get the hang of it, to watch how the gnocchi is heavy and then lightens in the water until it then actually floats to the top. The nutmeg was a little subtle for my taste. Next time I think I’ll try lemon zest.
You might need to buy:
  • butter
  • very finely chopped onion
  • egg yolks
  • Salt to taste
