I have a couple of questions;
When using fresh spinach out of the bag, does it need chopped?

When a recipe calls for bacon grease, do you cook some bacon every time? I keep a jar under the sink that I pour my bacon drippings into rather than down the drain. Is that stuff safe to use. It seems it would be like shortening...... to me anyway.

Thanks and looking forward to making this today
Just saw these questions...

It depends on how big your spinach leaves are. I harvest them from the size of an arrowhead to a baseball mitt! I tend to use the larger leaves in soups and I do tear them up with my hands when adding them to the pot.

I do both; cook bacon fresh and use reserved bacon grease. I keep my bacon grease in the frig. Pouring bacon grease down the drain?

I can only dream of this soup. We are seasonal eaters and are about 4 months away from our next bowl of spinach soup.
