If you are following along on my neediness on Instagram, you might have read the other day how I pretty much cried in the garden last week when I discovered that vine-borer larvae completely decimated all three of my zucchini plants practically overnight. I went from plants that were producing so many zucchini I couldn’t keep up to 3 completely dead plants. I almost cried as I pulled them out.
Luckily, though, because the plants were crazy in their zucchini production before this, I was able to freeze and shred a LOT of zucchini for future use! I now have a freezer full of frozen shredded zucchini to use all winter long.
How to Freeze Zucchini
Wash the zucchini and trim off the ends.
Shred the zucchini.
Squeeze out as much of the liquid as you can.
Package the shredded zucchini in 1 cup portions into freezer quart sized bags, removing as much of the air as you can.
Label them with a permanent marker and store flat in the freezer!
