ZUCCHINI “NICE” CREAM

When you think you can’t serve one more meal of zoodles or bake one more loaf of zucchini bread with the squashes pouring in from the garden, steam them and freeze them.

ZUCCHINI “NICE” CREAM

When you think you can’t serve one more meal of zoodles or bake one more loaf of zucchini bread with the squashes pouring in from the garden, steam them and freeze them. Cut squash into chunks, steam until easily pierced by a fork, and freeze chunks in a single layer on a pan. Pour frozen chunks into a mason jar or freezer bag. Add frozen squash to go undetected in smoothies and nice-cream or puree for winter soups.
