WHEN READER NATASHA mentioned she has too much zucchini (sound familiar?), I offered this advice: “Don’t plant this space-hog next year. Let your neighbors shower you with THEIR surplus zucchini. Then you can give your garden space to something truly expensive — and easy to freeze — like bell peppers.” Whoops. Turns out Natasha didn’t grow this squash — her CSA did. Who can help our friend out? Got any zucchini recipes or storage tips to share?
Please post your thoughts below. I doubt Natasha is the only reader who’s being quashed by squash!
Quick update: over on Facebook, Paula Costa offered the following zucchini-storage advice: Shred 2 cups in Food processor and freeze. This is what my bread recipe calls for so I freeze 2 cups in sm. freezer bags. I have 30 bags in freezer right now…I have also thrown them in my soups in the winter. : )
