    I'm about to make zucchini bread and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to peel it before I shred it. Thanks!!!

    You can make it either way. It just depends on if you want the specks of green throughout your bread. I have made it both ways.

    I just usually wash it good, cut out any bad spots and grate it skin and all!

    Well, I got my bread in the oven. My BIL gave me 2 huge zucchinis yesterday out of his friend's garden. One of these zucchinis is enough to make 4 loaves of bread!

    I hope you used the recipe off this BB called Extra Special Zucchini Bread. I forget who posted it but it is awesome. I made it yesterday, but used pecans instead of walnuts.

    I peel it when I want it hidden, and, when I don't care if you can tell it's zucchini, I leave the skin on. I have kind of picky kids, so if I tell them it's spice bread they will eat it before they will eat zucchini bread, but if they see the green, I'm out of luck.
    Reminds me of a story about my little dd a few years ago, when she found the piece of zucchini peel in the last bite of banana/zucchini bread, and pulled it out yelling "this is bikini bread, you tricked me". I still giggle on that one.
    So, I am no help at all.

    I only peel it if it got too big and then the rind is tough. If it is a smaller one the skin is nice and tender, then I leave it on...

    My neighbor gave us some of this bread earlier this week ladies and I tried a piece of it on Wed. It was absolutely delicious, I have always felt I made a mean zucchini bread, but this one takes the cake. It is a definate keeper. I haven't made it myself, but have definately had a taste of the best of the best.With the diabetes it was a small taste test, but well worth it! Give it a try if you so desire. Connie
