Zucchini Butter
« on: August 21, 2016, 07:57:28 AM »
http://Food52.com posted this recipe today.  Go to the web site and use their recipe search, type in Zucchini Butter and you will get the recipe there.  Read all the comments!  This is a wonderful web site chock full of really inspiring dishes to make, many of them using the ingredients we would use.  This iis originally a Julia Child recipe I think.  It can be frozen, used as a pesto on nearly anything, spread like a jam or even place a poached or fried egg on top!  You can use nearly any spice combination you like.  Very versatile and easy way to use up all your zucchini.


ZUCCHINI BUTTER


2 lbs. zucchini or summer squash grated and placed in colander to drain.  Squeeze out excess water or use towel to do this.
1/4 cup olive oil. coconut oil, ghee or butter
2 minced shallots, garlic cloves or both
S & P


Coarsely grate squash let drain and squeeze out excess water.
In deep skillet, add the oil or butter over medium heat.
Add shallots, garlic or minced onions, stirring until translucent. 
Add drained squash and stir until it cooks to a spreadable consistency.
Add your spice preferences and stir until combined. 

Pour into your container.  Chill or serve at room temperature.

Some spice ideas are: lemon zest or juice, zumac, basil, parsely, cayenne, smoked paprika, smoked salt or even nutmeg.  One commenter added chickpeas.
