It seems that few people know what to do with a large amount of zucchini all at once.
And truth be told, if they’re like I was in my younger years, it’s also not their favorite vegetable to begin with, let alone in massive supplies. I’ve only learned to love the green squash as I’ve gotten older myself, so I understand that.
But since I always recommend eating produce that’s in season, and preferably locally grown, using zucchini at this time of year when it's one of the produce bargains that's readily available makes absolute sense.
It’s generally dirt cheap right now, sometimes even free, but usually easy to find for well under $1 per pound.
So the trick is to find ways to prepare it that you and your family will enjoy. And in actuality there are many ways to do just that.
Here are some suggestions that I use in my own household.
