My Grandma Cash shared this recipe decades ago when I needed some fresh ideas for our over abundant zucchini crop . She was an avid gardener. Grandma’s cookbook was ever increasing with recipes her friends gave her, or she found in a magazine.
She took me with her to visit those friends sometimes and to see their gardens. She taught me that gardening is about community, sharing and bonding. This is the time of year your gardener friends will be looking to share their produce overloads, like zucchini!
