Our know-everything man, Martin Jensen, adds another revelation to our blog:

I've told you many wonderful things before and thank you for your appreciation. But it occurred to me lately that you may never have come across this marvel.

Spinach is a wonderful vegetable and there are many who appreciate it in spinach quiche or rolls, for instance - particularly vegetarians. But how is it that the world still does not know that lemon juice on spinach transforms this iron-rich treat to ambrosia?

I once mentioned this fact to an up-market waiter in a major city hotel. His eyes widened with recognition and he affirmed my statement with great verve. But when I tell others, do they respond?  No! Hardly anyone seems to know that lemon juice on spinach transforms a wonderful health food into the equivalent of food for the gods.

Yes, this is a personal crusade. I am telling the world. If you don't know, try it yourself. All you need is half a lemon and some spinach.

Spinach with lemon juice, people. Read, mark and inwardly digest!
