“Just the one zucchini, please”

14 01 2023

My neighbour texted to ask if I’d like a zucchini or two as she had heaps spare in her garden. We’re not big zucchini eaters, so I thanked her and said I’d take just the one. We just met at the fence, and this is the zucchini she gave me — it’s HUGE!! I’m now looking up zucchini recipes and tips for freezing it.

Edited to add: It’s 3.5 kg (3500 g or almost 8 lb for those in the US)

Update: I got 22 cups of grated zucchini (11x 2-cup Ziplock bags) plus a heap of pith that was quite furry and full of very big seeds (I tossed that out). Full size carving knife to show scale. All now in the freezer for later use.
