It's Not Easy Being Green


Ok, due to overwhelming demand, here's the recipe for deep-fried spinach.

Thoroughly wash and dry a head of fresh spinach. Cut off most of the stems.

Take a small pot and fill it about 1/3 full of olive oil. Heat to 350F (177C for you metric types).

Toss in a large handful of spinach. Be very careful when you do this, as it will splatter. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until it mostly stops sputzing. Remove from pot and drain on paper towels.

Serve as a side dish to someone you like, 'cause it's far too tasty to serve to someone you don't like.


I must someday share the tale of deep-fried sugar balls.

really people asked for this recipe? is this what's become of you? you're experimenting with deep frying? try pickles and let me know - apparently they're really good.

Pray tell, Mike. Deep-fried sugar does sound quite interesting.

As for the pickles, I think I'll pass. For one thing, I'm not a huge dill pickle fan (sweet pickles are another bag altogether, though). That, and I'd be a little concerned that they might explode due to their high water content...
