Can we freeze spinach? We only got one bunch in our CSA box last week, but I just don't think I can work it into any of our meals before it goes bad. I'd like to just toss it in the freezer and use it for spinach dip or spanikopita or something in a few weeks. Maybe I'll just wash it and chuck it in there, see what happens - better than just letting it go bad.
Here's a trick I've discovered recently: greens will stay fresher much longer if you put them in a ziploc bag, squeeze out as much air as possible, then use a straw to suck out the remaining air. The lettuce looks like it's been vacuum packed, and I've found I get another 2-3 days before it starts to wilt. And if it's just started to wilt a bit, putting a damp paper towel in the bag before you seal it up seems to help the lettuce perk up again. We get a lot of lettuce from our CSA, and even if we eat salad with dinner every day some of it can start to turn before we get through it.
