Zoe's Notes

  • Leave the skin on when preparing zucchini to get all its wonderful vitamins and nutrients
  • Don’t squeeze the zucchini once you have grated it, it helps your loaf get all that moisture.
  • Storage: Keep well around 3 days at room temperature,  up to a week in the fridge, and 3 months frozen.
