I haven't posted anything lately as I was very busy with my allotment. This is my first year of having it and I am a complete beginner. So amongst reading gardening blogs, taking photos and watching 'Gardeners' World' every Friday, I was way too busy to learn than actually having the time to post. I won't be getting into details about successes and failures, but one of the unpredicted consequences was that I ended up with a prolific crop of courgettes.
1. Courgette Compote - My Mum's Recipe
- 1l water
- 100ml vinegar
- 1kg courgettes
- 400g-500g sugar
- 1 lemon
2. Courgette Chutney
3. Italian Antipasti
4. Using Courgettes Instead of Pasta
Cut the courgettes in long and narrow pieces and boil them 'al dente'. Use them with any pasta sauce.
5. Courgette Fritters
Cut the courgettes into round pieces, season with salt and set aside for 30 min. Squeeze the excess water then drop the courgettes in flour and egg and fry them until golden brown.
