What To Look For
Small squash with thin, glossy skins. Zucchini should be less than 8" long.
Easy Storage and Preparation
Will keep for 3 days or more if refrigerated. Rinse and remove stem and blossom end. Cut into pieces of desired size.
Bake whole or halved, drizzled with olive oil, salt, and pepper, at 350°F, for 20 to 25 minutes. Or wilt slices in a very small amount of water with salt, pepper, and olive oil for 6 to 8 minutes. Fresh basil makes a good accompaniment.
