Spinach, Vinegar Wash


Off On

  1. Wash and drain Spinach

    Discard any leaves that are damaged or wilted. Wash the remaining leaves in a fruit and vegetable wash. Drying time will depend on the initial dryness of the leaves. To cut down on the time required, dry well with paper towel after washing. If you have a salad spinner this can get rid of most of the moisture.

  2. Lay out Spinach

    Spread the Spinach out on the trays. 

  3. Dehydrate

    Dry at 125 Fahrenheit/ 52 Celsius for between 4 to 8 hours.  The leaves are ready when they feel like thin paper and crumble easily between your fingers.

  4. Crush

    You should be able to crush the dried spinach into flakes with your fingers. Sometimes the leaf spines may not dry completely so when you crush the dehydrated spinach remove any soft spines

  5. Store

    Store in sealed containers in a dark area and add oxygen absorbers to help keep the contents dry.

  6. Conditioning

    Conditioning is a process of making sure that whatever you have dried has as little moisture as possible in it. It’s a simple process and involves mixing or shaking to redistribute the Spinach and make sure it is completely dry. do this over a few days.

    Tip: If I am making Spinach powder I usually do this immediately after the Spinach comes out of the dehydrator as I find that is when it is at its crispiest.
