DescriptionThis semi-savoy variety of spinach is grown by Deer Run Farms in Long Island, NY. With its exceptional flavor, this spinach is distinguishable by its crinkly, dark leaves and crisp, hearty texture. It has a clean, fresh taste with a light sharpness that fits beautifully in rich dishes made with eggs and cheeses. Use it in soups, omelets, salads and frittatas. Sauté it. Steam it. Braise it. Spinach shrinks dramatically when you cook it. A large panful reduces to a small lump.
