Monster Zucchini

It's Fruit & Veggie Season!
I have Tomatoes, Zucchini, Swiss Chard, Figs, & Grapes
to name a few, producing right now.
Picking at just the right time provides the tastiest produce.
BUT, I have a life and being able to check on them frequently proves a challenge at times. I feel so proud of myself when I have plucked every last ripe & ready piece. Or so I think ~
Going out the next day only to find a monster Zucchini! Where was it the day before? Did it develop over night? It would seem so ;~)

But that's OK with me!

I have the best recipe for Monster Zucchini's! :~)

Yes, Yes, I'm sharing. I can guarantee it is very yummy!!


"Z" Apple Pie


6 cups Zucchini, peeled and sliced

2 1/4 cups Sugar

2 Tablespoons Flour

1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon

1 1/2" teaspoon Cream of Tarter

1 1/2 teaspoons Lemon Juice

1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg

Dash of salt


Peel and slice through the middle of the squash; remove seeds with a spoon.

Slice each half to resemble Apple Slices.

Cook just until tender. Drain and put in cold water about 5 minutes. Drain thoroughly.

Mix all ingredients well and place into a 9 inch, unbaked Pie Shell. Dot with Butter. Cover with top Crust, vent.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

The first time I made this I didn't tell my family it was Zucchini.
They thought it was real Apple Pie!
A great way to get veggies down the kiddos!
