Then, depending on how big your zucchini are, you’ll need to at least quarter them.
Next slice them into bite-sized pieces.
While cutting up the zucchini, bring a large pot of water to a boil.
I filled it up with cold water and after adding a few more batches of zucchini, I just drained it and refilled it with more cold water.
After the zucchini has completely cooled, drain the water completely. Then place the zucchini on parchment paper lined metal pans. Next place the pans in the freezer until completely frozen. This will take a few hours at least.
Once they are frozen, break the pieces apart and place into a freezer bag.
I used our FoodSaver to vacuum seal the zucchini.
How to Freeze Shredded Zucchini
This is the easiest way to use up zucchini. All you do is shred the zucchini up (I don’t even peel mine!).
Then place desired amounts in freezer bags. I measured out two cups for each freezer baggie.
Then I flattened the bags of zucchini so they would be easier to stack in the deep freeze.
Again make sure to label them!
You can use shredded zucchini in all kinds of recipes, like Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, Chocolate Zucchini Bread, Zucchini Au Gratin, Zucchini Green Chili Cornbread, Cheesy Zucchini Rice and many others!
