making sauteed courgettes

August 23, 2010 at 8:22 pm 4 comments

Peggy’s blog and cooking for one last weekend inspired me to reach for my frying pan and sautee some courgettes.  I added some dried rosemary clipped from the allotment in the Spring and voila; 1 blistered yellow zucchetta courgette and 2 green black beauty courgettes rehomed in empty Hellmans Mayonaise jar.  Perfect.  So simple, so tasty.

Shame they didn’t store though.  Tried them as a pizza topping a week later and fizzy courgettes wasn’t quite the flavour I was after!

    I liked the sound of this right up to the bit where it went wrong! Hey ho – we live and learn, eh?

      it’s the hazards of bottling as we were discussing with passatta. Darn those air bubbles!

    Ah that’s a pity. I have a glut of courgette/squash at the moment and my freezer is full so I’ve been keeping an eye out for canned options.

    If it’s any consolation they look lovely!

    Looks fab in a jar.

    I made some last year (w/o rosemary) and like yours they did not store well.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed.
