How do you wash spinach and other prep sink questions
How do you folks wash mounds of spinach, chard or other greens and other vegetables? Do you use a big bowl or directly fill your sink with water or rinse each leaf or vegetable under the tap. I want to learn to this well and minimize bowls to clean and water usage. We typically buy from our CSA or farmer's market and I find greens and root veggies typically need 3 washes to fully get the mud out. My thrill with a huge bunch of fresh greens quickly turns to annoyance by the time I am done washing them when I look at my wet shirt, see the muddy dregs in my sink and see big bowl I used to wash that now has to be cleaned.
Context: So in my new kitchen we will have a prep sink and a clean up sink. Do I still need to bring out my big stainless bowl wash the greens 3 times or can I scrub the prep sink clean and fill with water and wash directly in the sink? Once the mud settles to the bottom, I can lift the leaves out to drain.
