How to freeze spinach

Spinach season is coming to a close so I’m getting my hands on as much fresh spinach as possible! I’m excited to have found plastic-free spinach from Potager Montréalais through Lufa Farms wrapped in nothing but a rubber band 🙂

In order to enjoy spinach year-round, I took a few minutes to chop it in my food processor and freeze it into little cubes‚ just like the ones I used to buy in the freezer section at the grocery store. But rather than conventionally grown spinach shipped from France, this spinach is pesticide-free and grown only 30km from my house! And did I mention each bunch was on sale for only $1?! A zero waste win-win-win 😀
