Zucchini Cleaning Essentials:

- Vegetable Peeler - Knife - Cutting Board


Wash the vegetable thoroughly to remove any dirt clinging to the skin.

Hold the young zucchini by the stem. Do not remove this part of the vegetable just yet as you need it to make this process easier.


Peel the skin using a knife or a peeler. Remove the skin in a manner that points away from you, not toward you.


After peeling the entire skin raw, cut the rear area of the zucchini. Place it on top of a cutting board and use your knife to get rid of that part.
