|My zucchini is starting to go into full production.|
I love zucchini. I just can’t wait until I am able to start picking.
I prefer to pick them smaller. These are as big as I like to let them grow.
I believe the flavor is a lot better.
The larger ones are fine for shredding, if you are going to use it as a filler or for baking brownies or bread.
A couple I know shreds it and adds to to all kinds of things such as meatloaf to give added nutrition.
I have not tried that though.
She also likes a few things baked with zucchini that I will have to bake and post.
I thought I had posted them, but I checked and no, I did not.
But, I will be making some blueberry zucchini bread one of these days. My blueberries are ripening good now.
I have also got a recipe for zucchini pizza crust that is pretty good.
When I grew up, my mom never grew zucchini so I never had it until the last five years.
Now, I find all kinds of ways to fix it.
Nutritionally speaking, zucchini gives you a lot!
It contains magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, beta carotene, maganese, vitamin C, calcium, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-6, and folate.
