My mother and her friends have had much better yields than I have this year and have been nice enough to share a lot of it with me. One of the things I received a good amount of is Large Zucchini. So I decided to Freeze some for zucchini breads and such and thought I would share how I do it. Now this back I didn’t remove the seeds and was told afterwards to scoop them out. I don’t find it makes a difference BUT If your Zucchini are Heirloom this is a VERY good idea because you can keep the seeds to plant next year.
After that comes the shredding. It really helps if you have a food processor with the grater attachment. If not you can do it by hand of course
I always end up with skins and ends on top.
Food processor full of Shredded Zuchini
And a baggie full scraps for the chickens!
And a Bowl full of zucchini ready to bag.
I fill small baggies with 2 cups of the zucchini.
Rinse and Repeat until all of your bags are full.
Once their all done you can Freeze them flat(On a cookie sheet or something similar and then it makes it easier to store them in your deep freeze. Once their full frozen I usually put multiple bags into a larger zip-lock to protect them from freezer burn.
One baggie is perfect to make a batch of zucchini bread which makes two loafs. I will make a blog post on this later on!
