How to Freeze Chinese Spinach
Instructions for Freezing Chinese Spinach
Learning how to freeze Chinese spinach from the garden is:
1. Trim away the tough stems.
2. Wash the leaves.
3. Blanch in boiling water for no more than 1 minute. Remove and immediately place in iced water for 2 minutes. (This stops the cooking process and helps prevent over-cooking.)
6. Place Chinese spinach in freezer bags, remove air, and seal. Label the bags with the name of the contents, and the date.
The suggested maximum storage (for best taste and quality) for freezing Chinese spinach is 6 months.
Suggestions: Use Chinese spinach steamed as a side dish, in stir fry, casseroles, and soups.
