Start by washing the zucchini thoroughly under running water to remove any dirt or debris.

Trim off both ends of the zucchini using a knife.

Use a box grater or the grating attachment of a food processor to grate the zucchini. Hold the zucchini against the grater and apply gentle pressure as you move it up and down the grater’s surface.

Zucchini contains a lot of water, which can make the bread too wet. After grating, gently squeeze the shredded zucchini in cheesecloth or clean kitchen towel to remove excess water. This step is essential to maintain the bread’s texture.

Once you’ve grated and squeezed the zucchini, you’re ready to incorporate it into your zucchini bread recipe
