Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Pick the Best Zucchini?
Although summer is the season for zucchini, they are widely available in supermarkets throughout the year. When selecting, choose zucchini that are firm, don’t have soft spots, and have a bright green color. Smaller squashes are less watery than larger ones, and will also have thinner skins. To me, they are perfect somewhere between six and eight ounces.
How Do I Store Zucchini?
The best way to store zucchini is in a partially sealed container in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to five days. A plastic zip-top bag works well for this.
How Do I Keep Zucchini from Getting Watery?
The best way I have found to keep zucchini from ruining a dish due to the high water content is to place the zucchin in a colander over a plate and salt it liberally. Let is stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
