frozen cubes spinach

the other day i was at costco with my sister and i found a great box of spinach. the thing is, i'm really the only one who likes spinach, and because we're talking COSTCO, it was big. what to do? she had a great idea; steam the spinach and freeze it for later use. awesome! i packed it into an ice-cube tray, then when they were frozen (overnight) i took them out and put them in a bag for later use. i can pull out a cube or two when i want to add them to spaghetti sauce, eggs, or whatever.

    Yeah! I do the same thing with fresh basil.

    ooh, if i ever grew enough fresh basil, i would totally do this to it too.

    man, i really wish i could take credit for this idea. however, my sister went to culinary school so she deserves the credit.

    What a great idea!

    My neighbor does this with pesto.

    that's what people who make baby food usually do, too. it's an excellent idea for spinach--i will definitely steal it for next time!

    shoot thats a good idea. i do this for baby food but would be good for grown up food too. my spinach always goes bad and my basil always ends up rotting outside in the planter...
