What happens when you don't pick spinach for almost two weeks? You end up with spinach coming out of your ears! I picked piles and piles of it this past week and decided to cook most of it down for freezing. We use frozen spinach a lot in our house and during winter this will sure be handy. To freeze spinach simply wash it, put it in boiling water for 2 minutes, transfer to ice water until cool and then let drain. Place in a freezer bag and freeze.
I really love spinach but now that we have so much I seem to be blanking with what to make with it. That's why I love bloggers. Of course there are always salads but here are some other fabulous ways to use spinach:
