zucchini season!

It’s zucchini season! Around here where I live-Central Kansas-it’s a joke to say, “start locking your car doors, if you don’t want any unwanted zucchini!” I have a plentiful supply of zucchini and yellow summer squash pouring out of my garden at the moment. I’m picking it, the kids are picking it, and still we end up with big whoppers or sunburned long-yellow necks.

One days picking out of our garden!

SO, making a healthy alternative to your regular sugar-loaded zucchini muffins and cakes is definitely on my to-do list. Mmmm. Just mentioning the thought of a delicious zucchini muffin is making my mouth water! They are so moist and tasty!

My husband, oldest son and I also LOVE to saute this amazing vegetable. Put a pat of butter in a frying pan, thinly slice some zucchini, add a little salt and pepper, then saute until golden brown. Oh so good!

Freezing zucchini for later use

Zucchini can easily be shredded in a food processor. I personally use an old-fashioned hand crank shredder which my children can also operate. Need to keep some kids busy in the summer? Have them shred zucchini!!

Start with some medium sized zucchinis. If you have some zucchini that got out of hand–those will work too! Wash the the pile and cut off both ends of the zucchini. Place zucchini in shredder or hand crank shredder and shred all the squash. Next, blanch the zucchini in boiling water for 4 minutes-do in groups as all need to be covered in water. Scoop zucchini into clean water with ice cubes. After cooled, drain all water and place in freezer storage bags. Push flat and spread bags out in freezer. Once completely frozen, you may stack bags on top of each other.

Zucchini can be used in so many recipes! Here is one that I have been using A LOT! It is the healthy version of the yummy chocolate chip zucchini muffins. Sugar Free and Healthy Carbs. I love to use Keto and THM friendly Bake Believe chocolate chips in the recipe–they are SO good! They are THM-E IF YOU ONLY HAVE ONE! …but who can do that! If you have more than one, then they would be an XO or Crossover. Healthy carbs plus healthy fats.
