I know you can freeze blanched spinach, but I am not sure about raw.

<b>Editor's Note:</b> You must blanch spinach before freezing to maintain the color and texture.

When I freeze spinach out of my garden, I wash it and let it completely dry. Then I bunch it up and put it in freezer bags. Great for cooking.

Unblanched spinach that is frozen will be safe to eat, but the continued enzyme activity in the green leaves will damage the texture and destroy some of its nutrition. The two exceptions of which I'm aware are onions and bell peppers, which can be raw-frozen.
