The ideal length for a mature zucchini is 6 to 8 inches. They're less desirable when they're overgrown because they become fibrous and seedy. However, every summer yields a few zucchini monsters; here's what you can do with them.
Stuff with a filling of spiced ground meat and Rice or sautéed vegetables, bread crumbs and cheese.
Scrape out the seeds and shred the flesh. Then make zucchini bread. Make that bread super decadent with this recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Bread.
Freeze the shredded zucchini for later use. After shredding, steam the zucchini in small batches 1 to 2 minutes or until translucent. Dip in a cold water bath, drain and freeze in plastic containers. After thawing and before using, squeeze out excess moisture.
