The recipe came from “Why Evaporated Milk Makes Good Food Better” booklet published in 1942. Cooks used a lot of evaporated or condensed milk during that time. Mom always kept a few cans on hand even after she began buying milk from the milkman. In the 50s the company still delivered dairy products by horse drawn wagon.
Serve with homemade bread.
- ¼ cup butter
- ½ cup onion, chopped
- 1 qt. water
- 1 qt. potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 qt. raw spinach, chopped
- 2 cups evaporated milk
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
Cook onion slowly in the butter until yellow. Add water, potatoes, spinach and salt. Cook slowly until potatoes are tender. Add milk, a dash of pepper and cayenne and heat thoroughly before serving. The recipe makes 6 servings.
I believe you could use regular milk in this recipe.
