Is your garden over flowing with zucchini? These helpful tips on How To Freeze Zucchini (plus 7 Ways to Use It) are just what you need!
I’m not going to lie, I’m over the moon excited that all four of my zucchini plants decided to be HUGE and produce massive amounts of zucchini for me.
I’ve tried to plant zucchini before in other states and countries with no success. But apparently here in Southern Utah, zucchini is almost a no-fail plant.
In fact, there is a saying that goes around in this small town during zucchini season. “Lock your car doors, or else the zucchini fairy will make a delivery in your back seat!”
Basically there is SO MUCH zucchini that goes around you can’t even give it away.
I’m not giving mine away though. I’m freezing it for later on this year! It’s actually super easy to do too!
Simply grate your zucchini with a cheese grater on a medium grate. Not too small though or it can turn into a soupy mess.
Portion out two cups of zucchini and place it in a bowl that’s lined with paper towels or cheesecloth, then just squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
By squeezing out as much liquid now, you’ll have less of a mess later on when you try to use it in a recipe.
USES FOR FROZEN ZUCCHINI:
- Zucchini Bread (this one and this one come to mind)
- Stir fry
- Scrambled Eggs/Frittatas
- Stir it into Rice
I mean, really, the possibilities are endless!
So go ahead zucchini fairy! Bring on the green goodness!
