Green Tomato and Saving Spinach

Good evening members.  It was wonderful to meet more of you today at St. Johns.  Here are a couple of tips on the tomato and spinach.

Green Tomato- The tomatoes are heirloom and the green ones are ripe and ready to eat.  I am making a salad with tomato, sprouts and cucumber.

Spinach- Many of you LOVE the spinach and eat it raw (including myself!!).  If you have extra spinach and you want to save it, you could chop, blanch in boiling water for 2-3 minutes and let dry.  You can freeze it and use it later.  This tip was from Alice today in distribution.

Have a great weekend.

  1. This is not really about spinach exactly; on Nov. 7, 2008 food distribution at kitchen angels i found a snail on a spinach leaf. I brought it home and it has been living in a jar and eating spinach, lettuce , celery, and carrots with gusto ever since. A favorite food is broccoli leaves. the snail is good company. Does any one know what kind it might be or any other relevant facts? Thank you.

      Thanks for the comment. I can do a little research and see what I find out about snails and spinach. That is great that it is good company! I have snails in my backyard that I see at dusk.

        I could not find details on snails and spinach in New Mexico. We probably have the same snails. Enjoy yours!
