On My Mind is a feature of Rhonda Jean's blog, "Down to Earth"
On my mind today is giant zucchini...
.....and what to do with it! This is a real-life sized chair, and a real life sized zucchini! We have grown five or six more almost this size in the past two weeks. Needless to say, we are getting a little tired of zucchini. So I have been looking for new recipes (this weeks favorite so far has to be zucchini hash with potatoes and onion and plain yogurt), giving them away to friends and to our "take some, leave some" produce basket at church (which feels good as I am usually taking produce!), and freezing some for later. To freeze zucchini, you have to blanch it for three minutes first:
Then you dry them with a clean cloth or paper towels if you use them, and put in a ziploc baggie for some delicious ratatouie in winter time! My next zucchini project, which is inspired by my new favorite cookbook "Nourishing Traditions", will be to can some with some whey and salt - a zucchini and onion version of sauerkraut.
What is on your mind this week?
