"Zucchini are so plentiful right now that farmers' markets
and neighborhood gardeners are practically giving them away.
For the best of the bounty, choose smaller vegetables up to the
size of a large banana: bigger ones can be tougher and less sweet.
Store them in a plastic bag on a shelf in the fridge for about
4 days. More than delicious, zucchini contain lutein, a compound that may
protect your eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration."
