Would love to use both in one dish, if anyone has a recipe for a good apple zucchini crisp since I have extras of both. Thanks!
Apple Zucchini crisp recipe anyone?
I've got apples and rhubarb... I too an thinking of a "crisp"
gotta get this stuff used up and out of my freezer.
I think Apples and Zucc would be good as a "bread" -- as in Zucchini bread. Yum.
Children and grandchildren unexpectedly coming for weekend so I tried this just this evening. It turned out great.
8 cups zucchini (I peel, scoop out center and slice to look like apples so they don't fuss)
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
In a large saucepan over med-low heat cook zukes in lemon juice for 15-20 min. Add sugar and spices, simmer one minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
Crunchy Pecan Topping
2 cups rolled oats or barley
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick of butter OR 1/2 cup walnut or grapeseed oil
1 cup of sugar OR 3 TBS maple syrup (I used maple syrup)
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Pour apple (zucchini, but don't tell) mixture in 9x13 oiled baking dish, sprinkle with 2 TBS arrowroot powder or flour
mix topping until crumbly and spread over fruit
Bake for 35-45 minutes until browned and bubbly
I also added a cup of frozen whole cranberries to "apple mixture" after it was in the baking dish as an afterthought. We have enjoyed this dessert but I don't dare let them know it was the neighbor's zukes because no one in my family will eat them unless they are deep fried! Ha
Sounds really tasty! I'm going to have to try that one on Monday unless I happen to get to it sooner, of course!
