Cut off the tops (stem end) of the zucchini
to expose a small flat
surface. Cut off a small piece of the blossom end so the zucchini
cup will sit upright. Using a small spoon, carefully scoop out the flesh from the center of the zucchini
leaving a 3 or 4-mm thick wall. Be careful not to pierce the skin. Also, attempt to remove most of the flesh in a single piece. Square off the chunks of flesh and cut them into a 5-mm dice. Set both the diced flesh and the zucchini
cups aside in separate containers.
