I never knew what spinach was until I was a teenager. My parents always
planted Swiss chard, with the red veins, because the yield was greater than
spinach and the flavor was milder. I remember picking the Swiss chard and
washing those giant leaves for Hungarian creamed Swiss chard or spinach.
This is creamed spinach with a Transylvanian touch. Regards, June Meyer.

Melt in a small saucepan over low heat 2 Tbs. butter with 1 finely chopped
fresh garlic clove. Saute garlic in butter a minute or so. Do not let
garlic burn or it will be bitter. Blend in 2 Tablespoons flour to make a
roux. Add 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. pepper and heat until mixture bubbles,
stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add gradually 3/4 cup of cream or
milk. Return to heat and stir until mixture is smooth and thickened. Blend
well drained spinach into sauce and serve. Serves 4
