Hi. I'm Devra Gartenstein with Quirky Gourmet. Today I'm going to show you how to clean spinach. Now, you can get spinach either in bunches, which you know, often still attached. Or, you can buy spinach already cleaned, you know broken up in to leaves. The reason you'd want to buy spinach in bunches is because it stays fresher if it's still attached. You know, it starts to dry off just as soon as you break it off here. The disadvantage is that it also comes with a lot of dirt on it. So the trick to cleaning spinach is patience and attention. I'm going to use a bowl of water here. You can also use running water. If you use running water, you know, you want to have just like a thin stream. You don't want to run the water full force on it. Because you waste water and you know, can 't really pay attention to detail. So, I'm just dipping this in the water and kind of rubbing the dirt off of it as I go. And there's some dirt starting to collect on the bottom of the bowl, and that's how you know you're actually cleaning the spinach. Now, if all else fails and you don't have the patience to do this, you can always get already cleaned spinach, and then you have clean spinach.
