Using Up the Zucchini

Last year I planted 3 seeds, this year only 2. Still the zucchini is overwhelming. I grilled one medium zucchini last week, brushed with oil and sprinkled with salt/pepper. Good. Not our favorite. My absolute favorite recipe combines zucchini, cranberries and nutmeg with a little (a lot) of sugar. I found the recipe at another blog last August and have made it numerous times. If you don't have a freezer full of cranberries just shred and freeze your zucchini and then make this in October when cranberries are in season.

  1. As the season inversion would have it, 6 months ago I blogged a similar "too many zucchini" post!


    We are still eating Messers Plump and Tall Zucchinis in the depth of our winter (in full view of the new z seedlings in the kitchen!). I highly recommend the recipes from Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable Miracle (http://www.animalvegetablemiracle.com/)

    I will give your loaf a test once we are back into zucchini surplus! Though sourcing anything other than a dried cranberry in Australia may be a challenge.... (potential export market ;-) )


I love chatting with my readers. So go ahead and comment to start the conversation.
