Can I freeze Zuchini from the Garden shredded or sliced to be used for cooking or making bread later? I am also liiking for recipes using Zuchin and Yellow Squash, I have tons of both. Thanks so much Vicki
You can freeze it shredded, but it tends to get watery. I would make as much bread, then freeze that, as it turns out ok when thawed. I have also made zucchini casserole, using bread stuffing, it is very good. Also a delicious bisque soup that is very easy, and tastes wonderful on cold or summer days.It includes zucchini, mushrooms, onion, chicken broth , and cream( it's ok to use once in a while). I could e-mail the recipe if you like. We also like it with onion and cheddar cheese,baked. YOu can try it on the grill, season with a little lemon pepper and olive oil, and put on the grill(cut in long slices, not too thin), cook away....
I have frozen it in slices and it does get very watery, I still love it though so I freeze the slices on a pan then bag it, thaw it and squish out as much water as I can and then fry in some butter with spices and parmesean cheese, that my fav so its the only way Ive tried it, works pretty good.
being best fresh,we freeze some with the same watery results.we are looking for a zuchini bar recipe ,with phil adelphia cream cheese topping ?got one? dale.
