How to store courgettes
The best way to store courgettes (also known as zucchini) is in the refrigerator. Here are a few tips for storing courgettes:
Keep it dry: Make sure to dry the courgettes thoroughly before storing them, as any excess moisture can cause them to rot or wilt quickly.
Wrap it up: Place the courgettes in a plastic bag or wrap them in paper towel, and then place them in a plastic bag to keep them from drying out.
Keep it cool: Courgettes should be stored in the refrigerator at a temperature between 32-40°F (0-4°C)
Use it within a week: Courgettes can last up to a week in the refrigerator if stored properly.
If you can't use the courgettes within a week, you can also freeze them. After washing and drying them, chop them and put them in a container or a plastic bag, press out the air and seal them.
It's important to note that courgettes can absorb odours from other foods in the refrigerator, so make sure to store them away from strong-smelling foods. Also, when storing courgettes, make sure they are dry and in a clean, airtight container to prevent contamination.
