Melt 1 stick of butter over medium heat in a saucepan, bring to a boil until the solids separate. Leaving the solids in the pan, ladle 4 oz of the clarified butter to a measuring cup. While warm mix in nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, salt & pepper then add the saffron. Prepare butter at least an hour before cooking spinach.

In a heavy skillet Sauté garlic in prepared butter until translucent then add spinach, using tongs, keep turning the spinach so it all cooks, when dark green in color and going limp it's done, remove spinach, don't over cook it.

Mix arrowroot and mead with a whisk, add to butter in pan and bring this to a boil, reduce heat and stir continually until thick.

Ladle sauce onto small plates, top with spinach then grate cheese over the dish.
