So, this spring I purchased one zucchini plant.
This one zucchini plant turned into a three foot mound.
So far, I have harvested over 16 pounds of this monstrosity.
This is one of my recipes.
I call this one "Zucchini Bread For Ian" because Ian likes it.
Zucchini Bread For Ian
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup apple butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
One teaspoon baking soda
3 cups flour
2 cups raw unpeeled zucchini shredded, tightly packed
In a mixing bowl beat sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, apple butter, and vanilla together until smooth.
Mix in remaining dry ingredients just until moistened.
Stir in zucchini.
Pour batter into loaf pan and bake at 350° for about 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes.\
Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool a bit more before serving.
Store in refrigerator. I wrap mine up in parchment and put in a "Ziploc" bag.
