    Has anyone ever tried to freeze spinach fresh,, without blanching ? I picked two large mixing bowls full. I like it better stir fried with just a little butter. If you tried it,, what were the results ?

    Mart, I haven't tried freezing unblanched spinach, but I asked a friend who is a great cook if she had. She said no because it would take up too much room in the freezer. We are assuming whole leaves being frozen, not chopped.
    Since you got my curiosity aroused, I did a bit of a search and found this: http://www.thyhandhathprovided.com/2010/05/preserving-101-freezing-spinach.html
    Interesting idea!

    Thats exactly what I had in mind. Was just wondering if there were any cons to the pro`s before I wasted a good batch of spinach. Hubby doesn`t like it so I get to eat it all ! Isn`t that wonderful ? Spinach salad last night. I do love my green stuff. Thanks MG !
