How to Choose the Perfect Zucchini

There have been many times when I've been standing in the produce section and I only pretend that I know what I'm doing. I just don't know how to choose any ripe vegetable or fruit, let alone a zucchini. I squeeze it lightly to make sure it won't turn to goo in my hand, but beyond that, I'm clueless. So I found some answers that will help both you and me as we try to figure out how to choose the perfect zucchini.

Fun fact you may not know already: zucchini can grow up to 2 inches in length every 24 hours. That's amazing! But in this case, bigger doesn't mean better.

Large zucchini tend to be flavorless and watery with large seeds inside. Pick a zucchini that is about 6-8 inches. It'll be better if that zucchini has a vibrant color. Zucchini can be green, yellow, or white, and it doesn't matter what color it is, as long as it's vibrant. Also, look for zucchini that have a good chunk of stem still attached, because they will last longer.

How to Store Zucchini

Something everyone struggles with is how to store your vegetables so they last as long as possible. You might be going grocery shopping for the week and you won't be using your zucchini right away.

So, how do you store zucchini so it'll be fresh by the time you make one of the amazing recipes above?

It's really simple if you want to refrigerate your zucchini. Keep your zucchini in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. It will last three to five days.

You can also freeze your zucchini if you don't need to use it within three to five days. You can chop up the zucchini and freeze it as is, but it might be worth blanching it before freezing it.

What's blanching, you ask? Basically, it's boiling the zucchini for a hot second (actually, it's about a minute). You'll deactivate the enzymes that would otherwise cause the zucchini to become mushy, discolored, and unusable in your zucchini recipes.

Don't blanch it for too long. If you do it for more than a minute, the zucchini will be cooked too much.
