Dry spinach well

Before storing spinach, it is preferable to choose healthy and green spinach leaves, and get rid of yellow and dry leaves, and unwanted weeds, after which the leaves are washed well, and dried completely from the water. You can use a vegetable dehydrator (in English: Salad Spinner), and you must make sure that the leaves are completely dry before storing them in the freezer.[٢]

Do not wash spinach immediately before storing it

It is preferable not to wash spinach with water before storing and freezing directly, because moisture may cause spinach leaves to wilt and yellow. Then, the spinach is placed in the refrigerator at a temperature not exceeding 40 degrees Celsius. It is worth noting that in this case, it is preferable to use spinach for a period of no less than seven days, because after this period, spinach will begin to lose folic acid, which helps in the growth of cells in the body.[٣]
