My friends the Meneguses gifted me with a huge batch of spinach from their farm. Here it is trimmed, washed, and ready to blanch. It filled my largest "everything bowl to the very top." Blanched 2 minutes before freezing to keep the color. Reduced in volume to 1/10th! 100 grams, together with cheddar cheese, made a delicious filling for an omelet. Packaged for freezing for many an omelet to come.
