It’s that time of the year when zucchini are starting to be plentiful in the garden, this year I didn’t grow my own, instead I’m relying on the farmers markets and farm road side stands. I use a tried and true recipe from a Hasting County International Plowing Match cookery book from 1986. These types of books are usually sold as fund raisers for various churches and organizations.
I love these types of recipe books as you know that the contributors have made all the recipes many times over, perhaps they are even old family recipes passed down. I haven’t bought any for ages but I’m sure they are still produced. I’ve got a few cookery books like this, do you have any?
One of my oldest is one my mum had when I was born. I still use some of the recipes from this book.
This is the recipe I use for my zucchini bread. I do cut the water down a bit as it is a very moist bread from the zucchini and raisins.
Here is a printable recipe if you would like to try this one out.
Cool, slice, add a bit of butter and enjoy with a cup of tea.
Get creative when there are lots of zucchinis around.
