Purée of Spinach
Wash and pick over one-half peck spinach. Cook in an uncovered vessel with a large quantity of boiling salted water to which is added one-third teaspoon soda and one-half teaspoon sugar.
Drain, chop finely, and rub through a sieve. Reheat, add three tablespoons butter, one tablespoon flour, and one-half cup cream. Arrange one serving dish and garnish with yolk and white of "hard-boiled" egg and fried bread cut in fancy shapes.
