Frequently Asked Zucchini Questions
Depending on the recipe you are preparing, you may want to peel the zucchini first, then trim off the ends and hold the end of the zucchini over the blades of a grater being careful as the zucchini reaches the bottom so you don't hurt yourself. You can use either a box, plank or even food processor.
Yes! You can definitely grate or prep the zucchini ahead of time. Keep it in a sealed air-tight container or plastic bag. I like to also add a paper towel to the plastic bag or container to help with any excess moisture from the zucchini. Properly stored, grated zucchini will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 5 days.
