Zucchini is overrunning my garden. It seems every day I go out to check on the garden I find at LEAST 2 fully grown zucchini. I have made everything that you can imagine with zucchini, and honestly, I am a little sick of them. I keep having nightmares of giant zucchini’s chasing me.

I have given zucchini to my mother-in-law and have sent them to work with my hubby. Short of going door to door and dropping them off anonymously, I had run out of ideas of what to do with the invasion of zucchini. Then my mom told me I could freeze them. Well duh! Such a great simple idea.

I decided to write-up a quick tutorial on How to Freeze Zucchini. I hope if you have an abundance of zucchini you will freeze them for later. I am sure come winter I will be in the mood again for zucchini anything.

1. Pick zucchini, wash and dry. Cut in half and scrape out seeds.

2. Either using a cheese grater or a food processor grate the zucchini as small as possible.  zucchini 2

  1. Hi! Does this freeze any better if you squeeze all the excess water out?

    • Hey Vikki. I am not sure how it would do if you squeeze the excess water out before freezing. It would probably be fine either way though. I chose to just throw them in the freezer because I was sick of zucchini.
