    I have absolutely got to try blanching spinach. I always sautée it but the problem is I don’t have a big enough skillet to make enough so that when it cooks down it’s any kind of substantial portion. I think you just brought a lot more spinach into my life!

    I do love spinach and eat it every chance I get. I did not realize that heated you get more vitamins-very interesting.
