Zucchinis are like rabbits-they multiply quickly, seemingly overnight. That little plant that looked so innocent in spring now is producing five offspring a day that you have no idea what to do with. Heaven help you if you planted more than one or two.
Every time I turn around, another zucchini has matured on my plants. I was excited for the first 4 or 5, and loved serving them fried with cheese or in fritters. 10 zucchinis later and I’m desperate for something different.
Instead of putting it in bags and hanging it on my neighbours doors, I’ve come up with a couple of different ways to use up the surplus.
