Hi all. I posted that I made this on the "What's for dinner..." forum and had a request for the recipe. I saw this recipe from "Daisy Cooks" on PBS/Create Channel and found the recipe by using a search engine on the internet.

Spinach with Pine Nuts and Raisins (Espinacas al Estilo Daisy)

Makes 4 servings

1/4 cup raisins
3 T olive oil
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 cup pine nuts
4 bunches (about 2 pounds) or two 10-ounce bags spinach, washed and dried, preferably in a salad spinner
A dash or two sherry vinegar
Fine sea or kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper

Pour enough hot water over the raisins in a small bowl to cover them. Let stand until plump, 20 minutes or so.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and pine nuts and cook, stirring, just until the pine nuts start to color. Add as much of the spinach as fits and stir until it is wilted enough to make room for more spinach. Keep going until all the spinach is added. Cook just until the spinach is wilted, but still bright green. Add vinegar, salt and pepper to taste and serve.

I had to cut the recipe down for one large serving, but it still turned out good. I had to use the jarred minced garlic and I used balsamic vinegar (didn't have sherry vinegar).

Sounds good. Thanks. I would steep the raisins in some rum (dark) or brandy for 24 hours. I don't have a microwave so I do things the old fashioned way. Leaves a hint of flavor on the back of palate that no one will really understand unless they know.

Thanks for this graytabbie - I was looking for a unique spinach recipe and am going to try this tonight (but will use walnuts instead as I have no pinenuts on hand).
