Let's start.

Now, I am boiling some water.

And then, let's handle this spinach.

Sometimes these roots are red and very thick.

That's really tasty.

In that case don't throw away and you can use.

This is red, for example, right? then you can do, like this.

These days I can notfind the kind of red roots.

You can cut like, a stem, cut this and split like this.

I wish this were red.

But I couldn't find that kind of spinach.

I cleaned my spinach.

There's still some dirt inside.

We're gonna blanch and then later wash.

This is eight ounces.

Eight ounces of spinach.

Water is boiling, let's blanch.

Blanch without the lid.

Around 30 seconds or to one minute.

Sometimes you see the spinach is thicker then one minute.

Spinach is thin like this, just 30 seconds.

Turn off.

(water running) This way, cold water we wash this remove all dust,inside there's a little mud.

Now, what we have to dois squeeze out the water.
