231 Green Colouring Butter

Method

Pound 1 kg ( lb) well washed and drained raw spinach, place it in a cloth and squeeze tightly so as to extract all the juices. Place the juice in a small pan in a Bain-marie of hot water and allow the juice to coagulate.

Tip it out into a clean cloth stretched taut over a bowl and allow to drain well. Scrape the colouring substance from the cloth by means of a palette knife and mix it together with twice its amount of butter; pass through a fine sieve and keep in a cool place.
