Iowa Ingredient | Spinach (#103)

An ingredient that’s not just for Popeye anymore, spinach is loaded with green goodness. In fact, it’s difficult to overestimate the nutritional powerhouse that is spinach. Join host Charity Nebbe on her her adventure to learn more about the leafy super-food. Visit Annie’s Gardens and Greens in in Fort Atkinson, and learn how spinach is not only readily available but also easily grown in Iowa. Chef Blake Landau of Newton's Paradise Cafe serves up a couple of delightful spinach dishes. And learn how several central Iowa volunteer groups partner together to plant a mile of produce at the Rinehart's Family Farm near Ogden.
