I come from a long line of divine cooks. Their recipes were written on hundreds of little cards and shared. Eventually some of those cards were passed on to me. Every once in a while I like to pull one of those recipes from my ‘family tree’ and get all nostalgic.
’Picked from the Tree’ is a series where I document those recipes from my family tree and maybe share a memory or two.
My mom was an avid gardener. One thing that we always had in our garden was zucchini. If you’ve ever grown zucchini you probably know that a plant will produce a lot of squash. So with our 4 or 5 plants we would grow way more than we could eat, but my mom never let it go to waste.
She would grate it up and freeze it in quart ziplocks. 2 cups of shredded zucchini in each one. That way all year long we could have delicious and warm zucchini bread; my very favorite kind.
