I'm not talking about a few zucchini here, I am talking about 20-30 every 3-4 days for about 6 weeks. Add that to the tomatoes from 300+ plants, 600 ft rows of sweet corn, 400 ft rows of beans, etc., and you might start to get the picture as to why I need to know what I can do with the frozen stuff. I know what I can make daily with the fresh stuff.
Quit planting so much zucchini.

I guess you didn't read the post where she says that she doesn't. It's her DH who plants it.

I realize it is difficult for those who do not have space for gardening to understand that one plants more than one needs to allow for poor germination, pests, deer damage, etc. We grow most of the veggies we eat in the summer and those we use in the winter. We like being as self-sustaining as possible. There are some things I am not fond of (parsnips is another one of my take-it-or-leave-it veggies), the DH is not fond of eggplant, but plants it for me. I am always on the lookout for different things to do with the veggies (especially if the "thing" reduces the time it takes to process something).

It's one thing to have space for "gardening" - our lot is 40x140 feet and we have a fair-size garden. But you have three - correct? - *farms.* That's an entirely different scale from anyone else I know who does not actually farm for a living.

If it was me and DH kept planting more than we could reasonably use, it would go into the compost pile.

I'd suggest planting yellow summer squash in place of half the zucchini. They pair up nicely and each has it's own flavor.

I love summer squash sautéed in butter. One of my favorite snack veggies.

Just this week I've received a complaint from my doctor that she has too much zucchini...

Go figure. I'd offer to cook a zucchini casserole and share part with her but I can just hear her now, "Medical ethics prevents me from receiving gifts from patients."

Wow, 100 years ago you paid for your medical treatment by trading goods with your doctor. Now you know what happens when the government gets involved in medical treatment.

No reason not to offer. It's not payment for medical services, it's payment for zucchini.
