    1. Wash your zucchini really well.
    2. Cut the ends of your zucchini off.
    3. Slice the zucchini in half if it is really large.
    4. If you’re wanting slices, just slice them up. If you’re wanting to grate the zucchini then cut it in half again.
    5. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon and place in a bowl.
    6. Then shred the half piece with a cheese grater or a food processor.

    Here’s a little step by step tutorial…

    Once you have shredded your zucchini put it on paper towels so that the towels will absorb the excess water. Then pat the zucchini with a paper towel. This way you won’t get soggy zucchini bread! I had to learn the hard way. ;)

    Once your zucchini is shredded it’s a good idea to freeze some for later. You know for those times when your craving chocolate zucchini cake?! ;) I typically will place 2 cups in a sandwich size bag. This way you can pull out a little bit at a time. Just make sure to label how much is in the bag. It’s best used within 6 months.

    Freeze your zucchini so you'll have it for months to come! #cooking
