Our spinach is quite bitter to taste. I have probably let them grow too big- leaves are hand-size. Washed leaves and put them in the fridge- the cool seems to help with the taste a bit. I read somewhere that the heat can cause spinach/lettuce to become bitter and that they are more of a spring/autumn veg. Has anyone else experienced this?
It should be fine if you remove the larger stalks then steam it and serve with a generous knob of butter
