Can someone tell me what is the fresh equivalent to a 10 oz. pkg of frozen spinach? TIA!! Kim

    That would be 10 ounces of fresh spinach.

    Be careful subbing fresh spinach for frozen or vice versa... I know that in some recipes (spinach dip is one that comes to mind), frozen spinach is actually preferable, somehow tasting fresher than the fresh. Just be sure to very thoroughly squeeze out the excess water from the frozen spinach, or you'll end up with a watery finished product.

      And 10 oz of fresh spinach is one of those large bags of prepped spinach leaves, just as a reference point.

        I have a soup recipe I'd like to try and have never seen frozen kale. Would the same hold true?

      Several of my cookbooks put it at 1 pound fresh = one 10-ounce package frozen.
