Or make up a load of courgette, onion, tomato sauce and feeze it

    The bigger they get the less taste & they have seeds in the centre like a marrow. Pick them small. I like them fried in olive oil & garlic.

    If they get a bit big I might disguise them in pasta sauces & such. If I find a very large one hiding on the plant it's compost bin for it.

    If you leave big ones on the plant it slows down production of small tasty ones.

    Once made courgette loaf, only me ate any of it and that was purely because I'd baked it. You can braise in white wine and cream etc. Hide it in curry image

    I think Dovefromabove might reply with some tasty recipes. image

    the pre-dinner question here is 'What shall we have with our courgettes tonight?'

    that would be nice KEF but I didn't grow any. I'm not much of a veg grower. Daft really, I'm vegetarian. Got some tomatoes and some leeks if the courgette plants don't swamp them. and some beetroot. 

    Maybe beans next year

    thanks Dove.

    I made a courgette/onion/garlic/mushroom/tomato thing to serve with jacket spuds and cheese.
