Dad goes to the public library numerous times a week. Mom said the librarians are probably happy to see him as he runs up their patron numbers, but Dad says they are happy to see him because he brings produce. Lately he has been delivering zucchini. The head librarian promised him zucchini bread. He remarked that he is still waiting.
Recently, I tried a new zucchini recipe and it was a big hit at our house. I wouldn’t presume to suggest I created the recipe. I took ideas from the numerous online recipes and pared them down to a few simple ingredients which I knew Dad would have on hand. The ingredients include: grated and salted zucchini, finely diced red onion, pepper, egg and flour. Both Mom and Dad enjoyed the result and the recipe has now found its way to the librarians.
Personally, I like the fritters better when I grated half yellow summer squash and half zucchini. The product was more pleasing to the eye. We also liked a bit of grated parmesan cheese added to the batter. Some cooks serve the fritters with sour cream or yogurt. We found they stood on their own just fine, although I can see them used in miniature as hors d’oeuvres with a variety of toppings.
