If you're someone who likes
to share, grow summer squash.
It's a very prolific plant!
We grew green & golden
zucchini summer squash
Unfortunately, we started
our garden a bit late due
to our May/June vacation
this year and it was just
when the squash "moths"
were laying their eggs.
We didn't notice in time,
and their larvae feasted
on our plants!
We were able to pick a few before
the vines started dying off.
Most of my zucchini is shredded,
preserved in FoodSaver bags and
stacked in the freezer for later use.
Although you can add shredded
zucchini to a number of recipes
to increase your veggie intake,
our main uses are...
*Zucchini Cake with Easy Cream Cheese Icing,
*Zesty Zucchini Relish.
I'll provide links above as I share my recipes here on the
blog in the coming days.
We use a food processor with
a shredder blade.
If you have a shredder for your
Kitchen-Aid mixer great, if not
a hand grater would work too!
Then we bag it up in 2 or 3 cup portions.
3 cups for the bread, 2 cups for the cake
and relish. Freeze it flat then stack it to
save space. No blanching required.
You could also slice your zucchini in
rounds and dehydrate it for use in soups
Sprinkle on some seasonings before
drying them for variety.
Whether you shred it, freeze it or
dehydrate it, Zucchini is easy to
preserve and a great veggie to keep
Now, I'm off to bake a zucchini cake!
