I've frozen about 15 lbs. Today I am making chocolate zucchini muffins and blueberry zucchini bread for the freezer. We have enjoyed fresh zucchini every night, shared some with family and there are more almost ready to harvest.

I make zucchini fritters with egg white, Panko crumbs, and spices and fry in a lightly sprayed pan. I like them with a bit of mustard and catsup. I also shred zucchini and freeze it in 2 cup packages to use for zucchini bread in the winter.

You may also make zucchini "linguini". Using a vegetable peeler, you shave the zucchini lengthwise in thin strands. Cook it in boiling salted water for a couple of minutes.
Drain and treat like your favorite pasta: sauteed in a bit of olive and and garlic; or a pat of butter & parmesan, tomato sauce... etc... it's delicious!

I do this with zucchini as well as tomatoes. I thaw them and put them in a blender or processor to make tomato juice. Add whatever you want to it, garlic, celery seed, etc.

Last year I grated some and just froze them (no blanching) they worked well for more zuccini bread and as a replacement for frozen spinach in lasagne/cheese type dishes. I also just cut some up an threw some in a freezer bag unblanched and they cooked up fine later on.

Success consists of a series of little daily victories.

I just threw a couple odd shaped zuchinni into my roasted tomato sauce that I'm making and freezing. It all gets blended but the nutrients are in there!

You can always make Baked Parmesan Crisps. They will keep for a long time in tupperware but your family will love them so they won't last that long.

You can spiral slice them into raw zucchini noodles for something different. You can simply dress them with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper.


Very refreshing. Very summer like flavors.

I picked 8 (!) big zucchinis yesterday and I was planning on blanching and freezing them. There are still a lot of little ones on the plants.

Does anybody have any other ways to preserve these beauties? We BBQ'd some a few days ago and they are gorgeous inside - sweet, firm and there are few seeds, but we (and the neighbors) can only eat so much fresh.
