Help! How to Keep Spinach Fresh Longer?

Good-Ways-to-Store-Spinach-to-Keep-it-Fresh

Question: “I love eating spinach and I buy it in large quantities but every time I throw more than half as it spoilt very quickly. What are some good ways to store spinach?”

Editor: In absolute terms, fresh spinach doesn’t keep more than 2 days in the refrigerator! But of course it is advisable to consume it the day of purchase. Anyway, here’s few tips:

  • If you store spinach in your refrigerator, wrap them in a damp cloth or leave them in a paper bag, not in plastic. Spinach needs to “breathe” and hermetic plastic will collect moisture very quickly, so paper bags are more appropriate.
  • Once cooked, spinach oxidize very quickly, eat them within a day or they can become toxic. The best way to keep spinach longer is to freeze your meal in several portions that you will thaw up when needed.
