*I shredded my zucchini right before I used it. I didn't peel or drain it and filled the measuring cup without pressing down hard and packing it. I just pressed very lightly to insure I had a full two cups. If it sits for awhile, liquid will begin to collect in the bottom. There was a little extra liquid that began to collect in the bottom of the bowl I used that I did not add to the batter.
*Tip for toasting nuts without burning them...If you have a toaster oven, spread the nuts evenly on a pan or piece of foil and use the toast setting on the lowest level. I toasted mine twice on the lowest setting. The timer helps you remember not to burn them, which can happen so easily if you're not vigilant.
