When zucchini get too big, because it seems it can overnight, what do you do?
Most throw it out because it can be tough or grainy. I don't like to waste what I've grown even if it is too big. Actually, squash casserole is perfectly fine using larger squash or zucchini. But I put mine up in the freezer. I simply chop in up into cubes and wrap up about a cup of chopped zucchini in heavy duty aluminum foil and place the packets into gallon size freezer bags. I have a couple of soup recipes that I love to make during the winter and cold months that call for zucchini. So I simply take out a packet and plop the frozen zuke right in the cooking pot of soup. I prefer the larger zucchini for this because it holds together better being frozen and in hot soup.
There you go! It has been such a wet summer that just about all of my zucchini got too big because the garden was too muddy to walk in. I spent more time with my shoulders slouched and a frown beside our garden this year that frankly I'm ready to mow it all down and give up. Did I really just say that?? That's pretty bad y'all.
Feel free to put up that extra large squash too!
