Keep sheep? Too many courgettes? How about this? :-)
« on: June 16, 2016, 10:19:46 pm »
So "what the hell can I do with all this rhubarb" season is nearly over, and "what the hell can I do with all these courgettes" season is nearly upon us  :)


A friend gave me the attached recipe. With our Manx hoggs away on their trip to the seaside  ;) yesterday, this could soon be the answer to our prayers! ;D

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Put on a pan for pasta, slice courgettes and fry very slowly in olive oil. Add finely chopped garlic. When softened, but not mushy break up a bit with a fork and add double cream and simmer until reduced and a bit thick. Take off the heat and grate strong cheese in (parmesan if you're rich) drain pasta and add to mixture.
This recipe I got from one of Hugh F-W's books but I think he pinched it from Jane Grigson.

Nah, it's almost certainly covered by fair use. If you could share the name of the book and the author that would be great.  :thumbsup:

That's how I preserve all my courgettes - cook slowly with garlic/olive oil, then freeze - makes excellent soup or pasta sauce....

 

Anyone got a recipe for pickling courgettes?
