storing and freezing
How to store Courgettes are best kept whole in the fridge or in a cool, dark place. Prepared courgettes, such as grated or ribboned, can be kept in the fridge for up to three days in a bowl, covered with a damp piece of kitchen paper to retain freshness and moisture.
How to freeze First, slice or chop the courgettes, then spread out on a tray. Freeze for three hours, then transfer to freezer bags and freeze for up to three months. They can be defrosted and added to dishes, or added into dishes frozen and cooked through.
How to store It’s best to keep them at room temperature. Putting them in the fridge halts the ripening process and can result in a loss in flavour. Do not leave them in hot, direct sunlight. Spread them out on a plate or a tray rather than piling in a bowl as otherwise tomatoes at the bottom may go mouldy or get squashed.
