Got loads of zucchini?
Even if you don’t have a home garden, now is the time to get your hands on some great local zucchini.
But what are you gonna do with it all, you ask?
Well, you can make zucchini fries
Or stuffed zucchini flowers (if they come with your basket of zucchini!)
Or, you can make some luscious chocolate zucchini bread
Or even a big batch of ratatouille
Heck, you can even grate the zucchini and use it later…
But if you want to use it in the winter for soup or ratatouille, then you can cube it and blanch it for later, like this…
Cut it into 1″ pieces and drop them into boiling water for a few minutes…
This stops the cooking process…
Then pack them in a bag and try this neat trick with a straw to draw all the air out (yup, that’s right, suck it out!!) …quickly pull it out and snap closed…works like a charm every time!!
A mouth full of summer in February never tasted so good!!!
