Spinach

General Spinach Info

Spinach has a water content of 80 to 90 percent, making it easy to wilt by accident.

Short Term Spinach Storage

Do not wash spinach before storing, even if it's dried, a slight amount of water on the leaves will cause them to rot. Store with grit and all in a perforated plastic bag in the humid environment of the vegetable bin in the refrigerator; spinach will stay in good condition for 4 to 5 days.

Spinach Long Term Storage

Frozen spinach is handy for recipes where it is used as one of several ingredients. Clean and stem the leaves, blanch for 2 minutes in boiling water. Cool and pack in freezer containers.

Spinach Side Notes

There are many varieties of spinach, but they are generally grouped into leaf type: curly and flat. Savoy and semi-Savoy spinach has curly, crinkly leaves. Flat or smooth-leaf spinach has tender leaves.
