Zucchini Bread

The gardens in our area are beginning to mature, and every year people want to know what they can do with all the zucchini. Here's the answer. A moist zucchini bread spread heavily with butter (Oh, my arteries!). But oh, so good!

Zucchini Bread:

3 eggs
1 cup salad oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups shredded zucchini
3 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Beat eggs until fluffy.
Add oil and sugar.
Add zucchini and vanilla.
Mix well and add dry ingredients
Put into a greased and floured loaf pan.
Bake @ 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Makes 2 large loafs or 3 small loafs.
Serve warm with butter.

lemonade

Hi all!

Does anyone have an old fashion recipe for lemonade? I am sick of store bought stuff that leaves my throat glunky. My mother-in-law had a great one but we can not find it. This sounds simple but I have tasted many and very few taste like hers.

Thanks!

Bob

Ed,

zucchini ?



Bob this is a near copy of my Gt Aunts recipe for Lemonade...

Old-Fashioned Lemonade

675g (1½lb) Sugar
1.2lt (2 pints) Water
4 Lemons
2 tsp Citric Acid
2 tsp Tartaric Acid

Finely peel the lemons, removing only the outer waxy layer and squeeze the juice.
Place the water into a saucepan with the lemon rind and boil for 2 - 3 minutes.
Place the sugar, lemon juice, citric acid and tartaric acid into a bowl.
Strain the boiling water over the juice mixture.
Stir in the sugar to dissolve.
Pour the liquid into clean, dry bottles sealing securely.
Will keep for up to 6 weeks if stored in a cool dark place.
Can be diluted before serving.


You might find it a bit sweet but we always drink it ice cold.



Cheers

Chris, not being a gardener, I share your dismay about Zucchini.

Zucchini seems to be a North American phenomenon. Near as I can tell, it's a vegetable that grows something like cucumbers - looks a bit like a cucumber, but a small plot of Zucchini plants can produce enough fruit to feed a small country.

Frantic gardeners who are loathe to just ditch the detestible things pawn them of on friends and neighbours - sometimes resorting to midnight Zucchini deliveries where they unload baskets full on the back stoops of unsuspecting strangers.

Everybody who grows the darn stuff seems to have their "favorite" recipe for it's use. Anything from soup to chocolate cake apparently can benefit from a heaping of mashed Zucchini.

Their only saving grace is that they don't seem to keep very long and the growing season is short.....

now I'm going to duck behind my fence before I get pelted with ripe Zucchini from all the gardeners in the group hehehehe

I've been pondering what our equivalent was over here and have found that they are called courgettes . I'm not enamoured of them myself but perhaps I've had the wrong recipe. I do remember them being like certain breakfast cereals that seem to go on forever. I'll stick to Broccoli florets, damned if I know what they're called in the US !

Thanks Chris, that sounds great. I'll try it this weekend. To be truthful I'll ask my wife to try it. I knew there was more to it then dropping some lemon juice into water. As for the Zucchini it's the fruitcake of the vegatable world. Everybody gets some and nobody wants any. (except Zucchini bread, I've had that and it's pretty good if no one tells me what it is)

Funny this should come up. I just received our first installment from our neighbor. Enclosed is a picture of our responce. I am going to hide it in his garden. Ha Ha!!!!

I have actually grilled slices of zucchini, basted with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Then just throw it on some toasted French bread with a little melted mozzarella cheese, diced roma tomatoes....instant vegetarian Panini!!

PS - Ed, thanks for the zucchini bread recipe! I'll try it out soon...maybe I'll post my mom's recipe for Squash muffins!

Only the gardeners do! ...if the zucchini gets out of control, Ed might box some up and mail it to you!

Life is unfair. Yesterday my wife told me if I would pick some zucchini, and clean it, she would make some zucchini bread. She was busy at the time, so I went out and took care of it. I had enough to make about 15 or 16 loaves of zucchini bread. I left for a while, and when I got home, she had baked 6 loaves.

Last week, she made some, and our neighbor had been over. She never had zucchini bread, and my wife gave her a loaf to take home. She (and her husband) loved it, and she wound up with the rest of the zucchini I picked yesterday! But since they're good neighbors, I guess it's okay. We'll have a lot more before long.

Greg,
You're welcome. Let me know how you like it. This is one recipe I'll guarantee. I'll be looking for that recipe from you.

Marie,
I can't box it up for you, but if you stop by, I can load you up!

Ed
