My Bumper Crop...

What do you do with your bumper crop of zucchini?

I like to cut some up and fry it with butter, onion and garlic. I like to make bread and muffins and cookies. BUT, there's usually an over-abundance.  What to do then (and no, you should NOT be leaving them on your neighbor's porches while they are out!).

I get out my Salad Shooter (one of my favorite small appliances!) and shred it. I then divide them into 2 cup portions and bag them into freezer bags....label and anytime you're ready to make bread, muffins or cookies in the middle of winter....just pull out a bag, put in a colander to drain and then use.

Waste not, want not!
