I was on a mini vacation last week in which during that time my zuchini's produced major huge zuch's! I was told on another forum that they can be used in place of apples ......cooked and frozen to save for Winter apple crisp. Anybody know anything about that? Thanks!

Zucchini Crisp

Submitted by: Deborah Trescott 
'My husband, Jamie, is an avid gardener and hates to see any of his work go to waste,' explains Deborah Trescott of Marianna, Florida. 'So we fix this dessert that tastes like it's made with apples but uses up a bounty of zucchini. It's so good, even those who don't like vegetables enjoy it.'

Another creative use for a big bunch of zucchini is to make delicious canned mincemeat pie filling. This recipe, with zucchini, apples, dried fruit, and spices, has no meat.

Zucchini Apple Pie

Submitted by: Elizabeth Wood 
Everyone will think there's apple in this delicious pie, but there really isn't. Peeled, sliced zucchini are sauteed in lemon juice until just tender, and then it 's combined with all the usual apple pie fixings: sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg and flour. The filling is piled into a pastry crust, dotted with butter and topped with a second crust. It bakes for about 40 minutes.

I did use this recipe last year and it was pretty good. A little sweet I thought but that is easily fixed.

I am a bit late for that year but for future reference here is what my husband's family does. They shredd the zucchini, hand wring excess liquid out, then freeze in 2 cup quantities. Zucchini bread is a family favorite and the recipe they use takes 2 cups. We have fresh zucchini bread year round with real zucchini from the garden!

I am very late to the party but you can also slice them the size you would for cucumbers and make pickles using your favorite pickle recipe. We do this all the time.

Take one recipe for fabulous, spicy zucchini muffins and add a big scoop of cocoa. Then top the muffins with chocolate chips or streusel and you are in chocolate-zucchini-muffin heaven.

Use Mary's suggestion about shredding for later use or bake a bunch of these for the freezer to pull out when you need them. I do use the chocolate chips and some nuts for topping.

How about including in a tomato based chilled gazbacho.
