…to all these goodies.
The courgettes are growing at a rate of knots! I went yesterday to pick some for my brother-in-law and for our evening salad, thought I got all the big ones but the reality was something else…
I thought I’d better pick all the big ones and some small yellow ones and then the next question was – what to make?
No problem, I have got my favourite Courgette chutney recipe, I make it every year and it never lets me down.
Even after making 5 large jars of this chutney I still had plenty left. I made my other favourite – a kind of stew. There is no recipe to follow, I just chop the courgettes, start with onion and garlic and some oil in a big pot, sweat it for a while, add all the courgettes and a carton of chopped tomatoes and some spice – it is always different because I change the spice mix. Bring to boil, turn down and simmer till the courgettes are soft, then eat one part and freeze the rest for later.
I put it in 500g oblong dishes, fast freeze and take out of the dish, put in a plastic bag and put in the freezer.
My freezers are quite well organised, one has mainly frozen fruit, the other veg and the last one a mix of bought things and an overflow from the other freezers.
The result is that I don’t have to buy any frozen vegetables, it is all there from my allotment.

Amazingly well organized!
To the courgettes stew – which I prepar the same way, but with fresh pealed tomatoes – I sometimes put some eggs at the end to hold the dish together. Delicious.
