Giant Zucchini

chicgail | Aug 10, 2010 06:51 AM

I just harvested a zucchini that looks like a watermelon. It's bigger than my forearm in both length and circumference. It was hiding under a zucchini leaf and I didn't see it until it had become utterly huge. The darn thing probably weighs 3 lbs.

Here's the question: what to do with it? I know it's going to have a lot of seeds that I will want to remove, but does anyone have any ideas of how to use it? Stuff it? Use it to bat at a pitched tomato? Is there any way to freeze part of it?

All suggestions taken with great interest.
