My Grandma's Pennsylvania Dutch sauce for spinach, that I would
characterize as a sweet-sour sauce, starts with sauteing one strip of
bacon, diced, until brown.  Add (beaten together before putting in hot
pan): one egg, 2 T sugar, 1/4 t salt, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/3 cup milk.
Grandma used cream or whole milk, so instructions are to cook until thick.
I use 1% milk, and I don't think it will ever get thick, so I just cook it
a while.  This is the only way I like cooked spinach.  Margaret
