Leave The Zucchini and Take The Apples

According to my Sweetie: "this pie isn't rocketing to the top of my favorites chart".
And later: "The crust is excellent, by the way - but from now on, I would prefer you make this with apples."
Well - I HAD to try it! My neighbor mentioned that making "Mock Apple Pie" with zucchini was a great way to eat zucchini! Now that I have actually tried it, I beg to differ.
All this experiment has done is make me even more anxious for apple season to get here! No zucchini masquerading as apples for me! I want the REAL deal!
If you care, here is the recipe I used and you can find many, many more by googling apple pie made with zucchini. Apparently zucchini apple pie has a rather large fan club.

If you want to make lovely sweet things with your zucchini, try out this delicious recipe on Butterfly Jungle for Blueberry Zucchini Heaven!
Or do what I do! Using your very own recipe for zucchini bread do this: just before putting in the baking pan, grate some unsweetened chocolate into the batter and gently stir to mix - playing with amounts to your taste! Coconut is also great in zucchini bread - or both coconut and chocolate!
