Yummy Nasreen....

How do you make zucchini sticks to freeze?
Do you bread them first?

Thanks for the link. My zucchini are just starting to grow, hopefully I get some this year, I didn't get any last year.

But I love making casseroles with them, I do up 3 different kinds and freeze them for winter eating. I HAVE to make zucchini sticks for the freezer, I make the deep fried kind, even if it means I gotta buy zucchini. Makes a great side dish on a Friday Night Dinner, when we are eating bad things.

I also love to put shredded zucchini into pasta sauce, no complaints at home or at work from the kids, they don't know it is there, more than a few times I have made the sauce without meat, noone missed it. I should look at the brownie recipe sounds like it might be healthier then the one I used at work, the kids loved that one, they didn't know it was zucchini. No complaint on zucchini muffins either. No matter if they have chocolate chips or not.

When using defrosted zucchini in muffins, I don't drain the zucchini, I just cut back on the amount of oil called for. I think the recipe I used I used 1/3 cup oil instead of 1 cup, the batter was thin enough without the oil, but you gotta have some fat in the recipe, I find it sticks too much if there is no fat. The only way I can make low-fat muffins is when I make it with a mix, but then there are additives in it, so kinda defeats the whole health benefit. I keep muffin mix (plain low-fat, cholesterol-free) around at work because it saves my behind when I am running late, or tired, or forgot to order some snack.

Thanks for the link! All kinds of ideas, but I liked the muffins and fries the best. Now if my zucchini plant ever produces any fruit, I'll be set.
