A Word About Zucchini
Zucchini [zoo-KEE-nee] is a popular summer squash shaped like a slightly curved cylinder, a but smaller at the top than the bottom. A zucchini’s skin color can vary from dark to light green, sometimes with yellow markings that give it a mottled or striped look. The off-white flesh has a very pale green cast and the flavor is light and delicate.
Fresh zucchini is available year-round in most supermarkets, with a peak period during the late spring. Select small zucchini, which will be younger and therefore more tender, have tender skins and less seeds. The skins should be free of blemishes and have a vibrant color. Zucchini can be prepared in a variety of methods including steaming, grilling, deep-frying and baking.
