I have NEVER had such a great zucchini harvest. It seems like every time I go down to my garden, there are huge zucchinis waiting for me. I have zucchinis in all shapes and sizes and hardly know what to do with them. Here is a snapshot from Thriving Home’s Instagram of me and this MONGO zucchini I just picked.
There are lots of recipes in our index that use zucchini so I want to save and freeze my garden zucchinis for future use.
By freezing my fresh, home-grown zucchinis, I can thaw them out anytime I want to make a recipes like these:
Like freezing green onions, freezing zucchini is super easy.
After washing your zucchini, simply grate up your whole zucchini.
I found that one medium zucchini ends up being about two cups. I like to freeze my zucchini in two cup increments because that seems to be a common amount for a recipe. It can be hard to break apart once it’s frozen so you don’t want to put a ton into one big bag.
Sometimes after you thaw your grated zucchini, it needs to be drained a bit. Just depends on how much water your zucchini had before shredding it up.
Now when you are have a hankering for some delicious baked goods that require zucchini, just pop a bag out from the freezer and get cooking!
