Zucchini

Green Squash, also referred to as Zucchini, is in a peak season plentiful harvest from farms along the Eastern Seaboard and Mid-Atlantic (and my garden!). Keep an eye out for in-store specials where you shop. Enjoy the mild flavor of fresh Zucchini julienned raw for salads or pastas, simply steamed, sautéed with oil and garlic, baked into pies and quiches, or cooked in stews and casseroles. It’s also great on the grill!

Spiraled Zucchini has created a whole new realm of recipe ideas. Using spiral cutting tools or mixer attachments you can turn that local, affordable Zucchini into noodles that can be steamed, saluted and more!

Zucchini Tips

  • Select Zucchini that is firm, and is free from soft spots or open cuts.
  • Very large and thick Zucchini can have more mature seeds inside, making it less desirable in cooking yet fine for baking Zucchini Bread.
  • High heat for a short period of time – like grilling or stir-frying – can help you avoid a “mushy texture” when preparing Zucchini.
  • Here are some interesting Zucchini recipes.
