    From Martha Stewart. Yeah I know, it’s Martha. But they’re really good.

    Serves 4

    1 pound (about 2 medium) zucchini
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon (1 lemon) freshly grated lemon zest
    10 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley, stems removed and leaves finely chopped, plus more sprigs for garnish (optional)
    1 medium clove garlic, minced
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour

    Using the large holes of a box grater, grate zucchini into a medium bowl. Add salt, lemon zest, chopped parsley, garlic, pepper, and eggs. Mix well to combine. Slowly add flour, stirring so no lumps form.
    Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat until oil sizzles when you drop a small amount of zucchini mixture into the pan. Carefully drop about 2 tablespoons zucchini mixture into pan; repeat, spacing fritters a few inches apart.
    Cook fritters until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Turn fritters, and continue cooking until golden, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer fritters to a plate; set aside in a warm place. Cook remaining zucchini mixture, adding more oil to pan if necessary. Garnish with parsley sprigs and lemon wedges, if desired; serve.

    Zapple Pie / Cobbler

    6 cups of zucchini (peeled, ¼ long ways, seeds removed and sliced crosswise the size of apple slices)
    Cook these slightly just until tender and drain well.

    Mix in
    ¾ cup sugar
    2 tsp cinnamon
    ¼ tsp nutmeg
    ½ cup of lemon or lime juice
    ¼ cup flour

    Pour into 9” deep dish pie shell or sprayed 7×10 or 8×8 pan
    Put top crust on and cut slits to vent or make crumb topping.

    Crumb Topping
    ½ cup flour
    ½ cup packed brown sugar
    4-5 Tbsp of butter
    ¾ – 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
    Mix first four ingredients with fork until crumbly. Stir in nuts and sprinkle on top of pie / cobbler.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Juices around edge will be bubbly and topping will be brown.
    Best eaten day it is made.

    Grilled zucchini is one of my favorites in the summer. Cut rounds thick , ~ 2 inches. Brush with olive oil or butter. place on grill on the cooler area for 1 to 2 minutes, turn over and put shreaded cheese or sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. finish cooking and remove from grill. A great appetizer or part of the meal.
