What to do with all that spinach growing in your garden? Well you could eat it all of course, but if you have way too much then there are a few options. I know that we take some of our kale, in which you freeze it or turn into powder. So I was thinking, hey why don’t I learn how to freeze my spinach.

You will be happy to know that it is a simple 6 step process. What this means is that space allowing you can probably process a lot of spinach, within a very short period. The chopping is probably my least favorite part of the recipe, however nothing that a really sharp knife cannot handle.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh spinach
  • sharp knife
  • chopping board
  • stockpot
  • ice
  • water
  • large bowl
  • paper towel
  • ziploc bags
  • marker

Wash your spinach well, so that you get rid of all the bugs and dirt. Make sure that any parts that have been eaten by bugs or turned brown are removed. Chop your spinach into small pieces, bring water to boil in a stockpot for about a minute or so.

Remove from the boiling water, and place in ice water in the large bowl. Spread out the spinach on some paper towels and allow to dry. Once your spinach is dry, you can go ahead and pack it into the ziploc bags. Mark them with the current date, before storing them in the freezer.
