Fresh/frozen spinach

Anyone know what the equivalent amount of fresh spinach would be to a package of frozen? What I mean is - let's say you have a package of frozen spinach. How much fresh would it be equal to. I mean, without the dangling participle, that is.

    It would be the same in weight. If your frozen is 10oz, then you want 10oz of fresh. The volume of the fresh will obviously be great.

    If you're looking for cup measurements, I'm not sure how you'd do that without cooking down your fresh spinach with a bit of water.

      No that's good - weight=weight. I should have realized it myself. Thanks!

        How could these end up equivalent? I'd think the frozen spinach would have less water than the fresh, as it's already been cooked down.

          Frozen is loaded with water - you have to squeeze it to make it useable. I would actually think you might have too much water in the frozen.

          Ounce for ounce is the closest you are going to get unless you have a better idea?
