What to do with courgette gluts.

By now courgettes are coming think and fast. Finding ways of using up courgettes can be a challenge. In this podcast I give a few ideas of what to do with courgettes to avoid getting bored with therm.

  • Ratatouille  is a great way of using up courgettes and many other vegetables from the garden. This recipe from Jamie Oliver is simple and easy.
  • Chilli cheesy courgette chips is an imaginative and healthy way to use courgettes in a chilli con carnie. This recipe from BBC good food is worth a look.
  • Courgette chocolate cake is another imaginative way to use up courgettes and this recipe from the happy foodie is easy.


Other notes.

In this episode I also discuss an e-mail I have received about potatoes. This has made me ask you all to let me know how your potatoes are doing this year. I particularly want to hear if you have grown one of my favourite varieties called homeguard. If you want to participate in this research I am doing then please contact me here.

I also mention a blog article from Jen reviews. Her article on how to start a garden makes an interesting read and can be found here.

So that's it for this podcast. As always please leave any comments or suggestions below. I am always happy to receive any questions.

This podcast runs for 19 minutes 32 seconds and is recorded in Littlehampton, West Sussex, UK.
