I prefer baby spinach as it is small. It is so easy to use in cooking. I just throw a hand full into a casserole or pasta, and salads are so easy to throw together. Instead of having to cut it up, it is already made small. Same taste and goodness, just smaller !!!
I like spinach and tend to fall back on baby spinach in a bag because of it's convenience. I think it has very little flavour and wonder at it's nutritional value. I have a book about community gardening and in it an African gardener comments that we grow our vegetables too quickly with too much water so they are flavourless and in his opinion less nutritious. It makes me wonder.
My favourite is home grown Siverbeet.
I usually use the baby spinach raw and it is a convenient way of getting some fresh greens. I think it's better to cook Silverbeet , especially if you are susceptible to Oxalic acid as I seem to be. Oxalic acid gives me a sore throat.
Silverbeet is what we grow and I always have an abundance to give away. My family like it pureed with a little sour cream in it and we freeze the puree so its always on hand. Nothing beats the fresh taste of home grown silverbeet
Ihave tio say that I like Baby Spinach the best.It is so easy to grow,and also to use in a large variety if ways! Whether in Pasta or on a pizza, or in a salad,I definitely would go for this little gem!!
