Test Kitchen Tips
  • Using baby spinach saves prep time because you don’t have to remove the tough stems of mature spinach. Some people prefer baby spinach’s tender texture in salads.
  • Unless otherwise specified, Taste of Home recipes are tested with lightly salted butter. Unsalted, or sweet, butter is sometimes used to achieve a buttery flavor, such as in shortbread cookies or buttercream frosting. In these recipes, added salt would detract from the buttery taste desired.
