Simple question. How do you get the zucchini to sink? all mine does is float. I've seen them in fish stores sitting at the bottom. Whats the trick? Thanks

You can microwave a slice for about 30 seconds - that helps some. I sometimes stick one of those lead ties (the kind you find around bunched plants)through the zucchini. Works just fine.

buy it in those frozen bags. they usually sink after they thaw.

or you can blanch them. dip them in boiling water for a few seconds and they should sink afterward.

I just take a plant wire(cheap at LPS) and put it around a piece. That weights it down so it doesn't float around.
