Zucchini Overload

My zucchini plants were slow to produce this year. The plants themselves were huge but I didn't get any flowers for a long time. Then about a month ago they started putting out. I am still getting zucchini's every couple days.

There is only so much you can do with zucchini! Since we have been harvesting so much I have started to freeze it. First off I froze some in chunks. I just washed it and cut it into chunks and this will be added to stir fry and soups later.

Another thing you can do with zucchini is shred it and add it to brownies, breads and muffins. This works well for those really large zucchinis you find hidden under the leaves of the plant or that you have forgotten about. Just wash and cut the zucchini in half.
For the large ones I scoop out the seeds. Then just shred the meat, skin and all into a bowl.I package mine into Ziplocks in 2 cup amounts. Lay flat in your freezer and they will stack up nicely.
What do you do with your abundance of zucchini?
