I bought a large bag of prewashed spinach (not baby) and find the texture unbearably spongy. Has anyone else experienced this? What can I do to make it palatable?
Yeah, I've encountered that, and those leaves are flatter, with fewer or no veins and crinkling, plus a paler green. I don't know if it's a particular variety or what, but they cook up allright, if a little less mineral-y tasting.
i'm dubious of pre-washed greens, because you don't know how long it's been in the bag. i'd rinse it again and cook it, rather than try to eat it raw.
