Zucchini All Year Long

I have always had mounds and mounds and mounds of zucchini during harvest season. I make stir fry, soups, zucchini bread and even add it to brownies, but I can never use enough during the summer season. But, the best part about having a home freeze dryer is that now I freeze dry my zucchini to use during the winter or to add to my long-term food storage. I chop it up for soups and stews, slice it for stir fry, make zoodles to replace pasta, turn it into a powder to sneak into spaghetti sauce or make all natural baby food. I love how easy it is to grab freeze dried zucchini from my pantry or food storage and insure my family is getting nutrient rich foods all year long.


Tray dimensions are 7.5″x18″. Plan on 7-10 pounds of food per batch. Many customers preserve 1,500+ lbs. of food per year.

My own experience with zukes is as follows. Not blanched, I shred it or slice it. I shred two cups, and FD that portion for future zucchini bread. Sliced and then I just put into a pan with a bit of water, heat and add seasonings and eat.
