This episode of Cooking Up The Season focused on zucchini. Zucchini is in season in North Carolina during the months of June – September. They are found at local farmer’s markets, farm stands, and grocery stores. Zucchini is fat-free, saturated fat-free, sodium-free, cholesterol-free, low in calories, and high in Vitamin C. When selecting zucchini, look for the ones with a slightly prickly, but shiny skin. They should be firm and free from cuts and bruises. Store zucchini in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator in the produce drawer of your refrigerator. Zucchini can last up to 4 to 5 days when stored in the refrigerator. It is best not to wash your zucchini until you are ready to use it. This will help extend the life of your zucchini. There are many ways to prepare zucchini.

For more information on zucchini and for a zucchini bread recipe see the Nash and Edgecombe Family & Consumer Sciences Youtube channel.
