Do you remove the seeds and the insides of the zucchini to freeze it? I don't know if you have to peel it and remove the seeds and such, or what you have to do to it to get it ready for the freezer.
Yellow and Zucchini squash can be picked when tender; wash, slice crossways, and blanch 1 min in boiling water, then place in ice water a few min to cool. Drain and place in freezer bags or containers.
I have also cooked them with onions and a few shredded carrots, let cool and placed into freezer bags. Don't allow the water content to be very much. This can then be made into a squash casserole by adding cream of chicken soup and layer with herbal stuffing mix. Melt 1/2 stick of butter and pour over the stuffing mix.
