So much spinach

I love spinach but I hate buying those big bags because sometimes I don’t use it all and it sits in the fridge for weeks after. You can however wilt down your spinach and freeze it so it’s on hand to throw in dishes as and when you like 😃

First things first, put a very small amount of water in the bottom of a saucepan and put it on the heat, depending on the size of your pan you may need to do it batches. Wilting the spinach will take literally 2mins  

 
Once it’s wilted down it will look like this  

 
Put it in a colander and press with the back of a spoon to get rid of as much water as possible 

 
When pressed spread out on a baking tray and leave to cool for a few mins before putting in the freezer, doing it like this will ensure you have a fairly free mixture rather than one big clump 

 When frozen break up and put into a freezer bag and keep on hand to throw into those yummy home cooked meals 😃

So easy and cuts down on waste, you know how I feel about food waste grrrrr!!! 😡
