Too Much Zucchini? Try Freezing It!
The easiest way to put up zucchini is to seed it and shred it. If you feel so inclined, you can peel it. (That is peeled in the picture). In breads and stews, it is prettier if you don't peel it, but if you are trying to be SNEAKY, peel it and no one will ever know it's in your recipe. I measure it into 3 c. portions and freeze it that way because my fave zucchini bread recipe calls for 3 c. You can freeze it in any portion size you like! You can puree it also if you are a sneaky chef and like to get the veggie into other foods.
When it's time to thaw the zucchini, simply snip a 1/4" corner off the bag and leave it in the sink to drain as it thaws. If you need a quick thaw, open the bag, put the bowl in a microwave-save bowl with the corner snipped, and defrost on low power.
Now you can make Zucchini bread!
