New idea for potato ricer!

I was trying to squeeze dry frozen spinach and canned chicken yesterday. I finally hit on the idea of using my potato ricer...works like a champ!

Great idea!

I got my ricer at a yard sale for 25 cents. A good quality old one.

EXCELLENT Idea Thank You!!!!!
I use a lot of frozen spinach, and stand over the sink ringing my hands & ringing my hands trying to get all the water out...
How come I have never got the "Clue" my ricer would be perfect?
LOL!

Thanks, I am free from wringing Spinach!!!!

I also do a lot of squeezing with canned crab meat - I think the ricer might take care of that, too! I just have to find one now.

I always have green kitchen towels after I cook spinach. Thanks BJ. I'm giving you some karma for that wonderful hint.

Hee, hee, I guess y'all just aren't as lazy as I am. I probably waste more energy trying to figure out an easier way than if I just went ahead and did it. My best ideas just pop into my head though.

Now I need an idea on how to separate that clump of spinach after I've squeezed it dry...anyone got an idea?

Beej, no kidding, I use my kitchen scissors to make small pieces .

You can have 10# of spinach and after squeezing, it is a 3x4 chunk. I just get out the scissors and snip snip snip.
