Zucchini Season, My Favorite Time of Year

Summer is in full swing and that means it is zucchini season, my favorite time of year. I love cooking and baking with zucchini, it is probably my favorite vegetable. We always grow zucchini in our garden so we can make ALL the zucchini recipes. If you don’t have a garden, don’t worry, you can buy zucchini at the farmers market, store, or I bet your neighbors have some zucchini they are willing to give to you. Zucchini grows like crazy during the hot summer months and everyone is always trying to share the zucchini love.

Tips for Cooking and Baking with Zucchini

  • The smaller zucchini are best for cooking and grilling.
  • If you have a giant zucchini that got too big in the garden, don’t throw it out, use it for baking! Over sized zucchini are my favorite because I LOVE baking with zucchini. When you put zucchini in baked goods, magic happens! It makes cakes, breads, cookies, brownies, etc. so moist and delicious.
  • To use zucchini in baked goods, shred the zucchini. You can use a box grater or a food processor. I never peel the zucchini first, it is fine to leave on the green skin.
  • For baked goods, squeeze the liquid out of the zucchini in a paper towel before adding it to your recipe. Zucchini holds a lot of water and if you don’t squeeze out some of the moisture your baked goods might be too moist. I find that garden zucchini has a lot more moisture than store bought zucchini. If your zucchini isn’t that watery, gently squeeze it out but don’t take out all of the moisture. You want the zucchini to add moisture to your recipe.
  • If you have a lot of zucchini and aren’t able to use it all at once, shred it up and freeze it. Squeeze some of the moisture out and place in a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 2 months. To use, defrost the zucchini first, and squeeze out additional moisture, if necessary.
