Re: Picking and Preparing Spinach

I, too, never cease to be amazed at how much spinach it takes to make enough for a meal. Perhaps that's because I love it so much that I have to make huge amounts of it if my husband wants any!
Washing the spinach is always a bit of a challenge but I have found something that works for me. I use one of the large Tupperware popcorn bowls to soak the spinach because it's deep enough for the leaves to float. After a good soak, I dunk the leaves a couple of times and then use a small colander with a handle to scoop out the clean leaves, ready for de-stemming.
