I have a ton of fresh organic spinach (I bought some, DH bought some, MIL brought some over...). DS current favorite is spinach so EVERYONE has been getting him some! (It's apparent that we need to communicate a little better.)

Anyway, there's no way I can eat all of this before it goes bad so can I make little baggies and toss them in the freezer?

I think so but I'd cook it first. (or at least blanch it). I'm not sure what the texture would be like otherwise. What I'd do it cook it in a small amount of water, let it cool a bit so it can be handled and squeeze some of the extra moisture out. Then I'd just pack it up and freeze it. hth

Yes, just blanch it quickly, press water out & freeze. You will have a lot less spinach after blanching it! It shrinks down a lot. But it's still worth it, even if you just get one baggie full.
