Frozen Spinach

It was another *very* cold night last night.  The temperatures dropped to 25F!  Unbelievable.  I'm glad I covered all my new little seedlings.

But what I haven't had to cover this entire winter, even with our many nights of subfreezing temperatures, is my spinach.  It has frozen solid more times than I care to count this season, but after every freeze the spinach thaws beautifully and gets a little bit sweeter.  Here's what it looked like this morning.  I think there's something very beautiful about it that I want to share.


Tonight I think I'll make a Brown Rice, Lentil and Spinach soup.  It's a great recipe and the perfect dinner for what's shaping up to be another very cold night in the hills of South Texas.


  1. It's a great soup, Rachel. I'll email the recipe to you.
