How to Easily Squeeze Spinach Dry

Frozen spinach contains a ton of excess liquid that must be removed before it's used. Here are a few simple tips to get a better handle on drying spinach.

How to Easily Squeeze Spinach Dry

Frozen spinach can be a pain to squeeze dry after it’s been thawed. An easy way to dry it is to place the spinach (in batches) in a potato ricer and squeeze until dry. You won’t have wet countertops or dirty kitchen towels trying to squeeze out all the liquid.

After cooking frozen spinach, it needs to be completely drained. To do this, I place the spinach in a round metal steaming basket, close the sides, and then squeeze. It’s easier to clean than a strainer and less messy than paper towels.
