Hen with spinach. Wash it like I told you. Boil the whole hen; once boiling it to make it tender, put it in a different pot; add some black pepper, nutmeg flower; clean the spinach leaves, boil it in hot water, then pass through a strainer it, pour cold water onto it and twist it. Once the meat is cooked, pit the spinach next to it, let them cook together. When serving it, put the hen in the plate and the spinach onto it.
