Spinach Selection :
To begin, seek out locally farmed spinach — not just to support your town, but also because it is the freshest choice, requiring less travel and storage time.If it doesn’t work, go to the supermarket and get the freshest spinach you can find.
Fresh spinach can be purchased as a bunch, a bag, or a plastic container.All three are viable choices.Just be careful not to overspend!It’s pointless to buy more spinach than you can consume in three days.
Look for the following:
- Vibrant green foliage – brown, wilted, or yellow leaves should be avoided
- Avoid using bags or containers that have a lot of moisture in them.
- Choose for spinach that has been kept in a refrigerator rather than on a shelf.
Spinach Storage :
- Keep spinach in the original bag or plastic container and wash just prior to use
- Store bunch spinach in a plastic bag after ensuring there is no moisture on the leaves (pat dry if moisture is present)
- For extra protection, wrap in clean tea towel or paper towel
- Store in the high humidity crisper drawer
- Eat your spinach within 3 to 5 days.
- If you have any leftover spinach, use it in hot meals such as manicotti, fritatta, or biscuits.If you have any leftovers, freeze them for smoothies, soups, and stews.
