Using the Zucchini harvest
That being disposed on I still had about five kilos of various types of zucchini to use.
First up a Zucchini bread. On the weekend I had a very poor example of pear and raspberry bread, in a tourist trap cafe at circular Quay, I really cant think what possessed us to go there. I also had a very nice example of the same at Palate Pleasure in Bowral. I thought I could make a similar loaf using Zucchinis. It turned out very nicely.
3 cups grated zucchini
2 cups raw sugar
2 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup of nuts, I used macadamias that needed using up
mix all these together and then add
4 eggs lightly beaten
125 g melted butter or oil of your choice
Bake in a loaf tin at 180 for about an hour or until cooked.
That still left me with a kilo of rond de nice,
I decided to incorporate them into our dinner of roasted tomato sauce and new potatoes, that worked out well.
I still have a lot of trombocinos.
Tonight I will grate them up and saute with herbs and garlic to use as a filling for a lasagna with home made pasta. I was able to get some more spelt flour on the weekend so will use that for the pasta.
