Summer is the time when gardeners have too many zucchinis. What seemed like a good idea in May becomes a burden later. What to do with all that zucchini? Below is a zucchini recipe from the 350th Cookbook. It is a teaser for the cookbook, which will be available in September.
The cookbook will feature Suffield farms and farm stands and contains about 300 recipes provided by your Suffield neighbors. The cookbook will be available for purchase on https://www.suffieldct.gov/our-town/350th-celebration, Suffield Farmer’s Market and various farm stands.
