Eight Things You May Not Have Known About Zucchini

With there being plenty of zucchini around this time of year I thought I might share with you 8 things about zucchini you may of known or not known

  • Zucchini is very easy to use. No need to skin you can simply shred it all. The green color is rather nice and most likely there are many vitamins in the skin. Just be sure to wash and dry carefully before shredding

Make sure to not let it go to waste here is what you do: shred, bag and freeze for a later use. Yes, that is the secret but beware that when you defrost it it will be super wet. To use squeeze the water out before adding to recipes.
