I just bought a vegetable spiral slicer and Im so excited!! I was wondering if anyone has some tips or tricks about getting rid of excess water and storing (plan to make a decent amount for the week) zucchini noodles.

Thanks!

actually no. haha i can't remember it ever being too watery. i've tried it with cucumber noodles and it doesn't work at all. they get really mushy.

Do you do anything like get rid of excess liquid beforehand or store in paper towel?

after spiralizing, let it sit for 20 minutes. then pat dry. that way, excess water bleeds out before cooking.

i do the same- make big batches at once. i'd do like 4 zucchini and have them for about 4-5 days in the fridge in a big freezer bag. works fine.

I'd say, cut them into zoodles as needed, don't try to store them, or they might release liquid. They don't take long to prepare them. If you do decide to store them, put them in a plastic bag for up to 2 days, in the fridge. They won't do well in the freezer.
