    We have 5 plants, and I reckon we easily get 10-12 courgettes a week.

    Default Ham and courgette scones.

    I have not tried this yet, but they sound nice..
    8oz (225g) Self Raising flour
    salt and pepper to taste
    2oz (50g) margarine
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    2oz (50g) ham, finely chopped
    1 courgette, coarsely grated
    1 medium egg, beaten with enough milk to make 4 floz (100ml) liquid

    Heat oven to 200 degrees/gas mark 6.
    mix flour and seasoning in a bowl, rub in the margarine then stir in the oregano, ham and courgette
    Stir in the milk and egg mixture, reserving a little for glazing the tops of the scones, and mix to a soft dough.
    Knead lightly on a floured surface and pat out to a thickness of about 2cm/1 inch, and cut out into 2.5 inch rounds. Re-roll the trimmings and cut more rounds.
    Glaze the tops with reserved milk and egg liquid and bake for 10 minutes until risen and golden brown.
    According to the book, they are nice with soup.

    Hugh FW's recipe for courgette and parmesan pasta is good too. And his ratatouille OH yes and the RC chutney uses them too if they are overgrown. I am sure I should be getting commission for this.

    Hi
    Yes, courgettes, had tons off of one plant, white volunteer, and would have been stumped without Elaine Borish's cookbook What Will I do with all these Courgettes, been my most heavily used cookbook this year.
    When you've worked through all the savoury ideas she has some wonderful sweet recipes, muffins are very good and a very delicious chocolate courgette cake, I've used up 4lb of them with this.
    Still got some left so its ratatouille and I think one last chocolate cake this year.

    Used the last of mine to make up a load of ratatouille for the freezer and onel last meal of it pan fried with balsamic vinegar, sun dried tomatoes and a bit of brown sugar - try it, it's lovely, especially with a nice piece of fish. Had a bumper year too but can never get enough of them so not a problem. Actually, there was a bit of a problem, the freezer is now too full - need a new bigger one!
