In the same way, you can prepare broccoli, asparagus beans or cauliflower.

  1. We wash the vegetables, cut off the tips on both sides.
  2. We dry the squash with a napkin or a kitchen towel and cut into circles or cubes, a thickness of not more than 1 cm.
  3. Boil water in a large pot.
  4. Pour ice into a large bowl and fill it with cold water.
  5. In small batches, we lower the harvested vegetables from boiling water, cook until half cooked.
  6. Using a slotted spoon, remove the zucchini from hot water, send it to a bowl with ice cubes.
  7. Once cooled, we take out a spoon with holes and put it in one layer on a towel.
  8. We place the slightly dried-up workpieces evenly on the kitchen board, and send them to the chamber.
  9. As soon as all the pieces become hard, pour them into a ziplock bag.
  10. We release air from the packaging and fasten it.
  11. We send back to the freezer for storage.
