Zucchini and cucumbers, plus fresh dill
The July zucchini explosion is here
At last, I picked cucumbers today, three long, thin-skinned English cucumbers. They are my favorites English Cucumber, “Chelsea Prize”, which is an exclusive from Renee’s Garden Seed.
Cucumber season is never long enough. When the little cucumbers finally arrive in a couple of weeks, I’ll make a few pickles. But, these slender, sweet fleshed Chelsea Prize cukes are best for fresh eating.
Visit Zucchini Everything on Pinterest or try this simple cake to use up a big zucchini.
One recipe makes three cakes zucchini, carrot or apple Yes, the recipe really calls for 4 cups of zucchini (!), carrots, or apples. It is a beautiful cake with flecks of both zucchini and carrots.
While I have plenty of zucchini and carrots, I’ll make a couple of these cakes to freeze.
