Ripe zucchini has dark green skin and are not small :)
ooh, only saw this now, thank you sooo much!! are they supposed to be soft or hard to touch??
Nope, not soft, firm :)
Ya and also their seeds should be fully developed.
lol, you made me laugh!! (all that was missing was "long"! ) lol!
thank you for answering! That makes sense... sometimes when I buy them they are already soft which is strange... i wonder if they just don't sell that much and end up over-ripening in the store?
yeah, I HATE the soft ones! Look for firm ones... haha... does feel funny to type that
ah, thanks so much! It's true, I do find them easier to digest when peeled and when they're smaller too (for some reason I do like the smaller ones' taste better.. :)
Thank you so much guys!
What I do is peel them, make zucchini noodles, and then add the peel to the dressing I am making (blended)! I also do the same with cucumbers.
