Freezing Zucchini

I LOVE ZUCCHINI!! Thank goodness it freezes well ^_^
Here is the zucchini that I shredded up from last time I went to the downtown farmers market.

Rinse the zucchini to get off any dirt. Then shred them into a giant bowl.... or bowl+plate...

Then get out the plastic wrap cut off about a square. Scoop the zucchini out into 1 cup portions. Make sure you pack it in the measuring cup because it will lose moisture over time.

Then fold the plastic wrap over making little zucchini pillows. Make sure you get out as much air as you can. As you can see I got 14 cups of shredded zucchini :)

Then throw them in a giant freezer bag (or 2) and use when needed. Again, make sure you get out as much air as you can.

Easy Peasy :)

Also, if you have any bits that you had to peel or cut off, throw them in a bag and put it in the freezer. Whenever I have leftover veggie bits (zucchini, carrots, celery...), I freeze them until I have enough to make veggie broth. It's soooo very yummy :)
