Last year I grew a yellow zucchini in the vegetable garden as well as the normal green ones. This year, where that plant was, a number of seedling zucchinis have come up and started to fruit.
As you can see, they obviously have an identity problem.
Am I green? Am I yellow?
Now, the story goes that the Granny Smith apple was a chance find as well (Full Story) but somehow I can't see Old Codger Kennedy's zucchinis storming the culinary world.
They will come in handy for Australia Day on Saturday, what with the national colours being green and gold.
And perhaps I should use some to make a Mock Apple Pie for Richard. It is not a great recipe but I think he is amused that you can actually use zucchini to make an imitation apple pie.
It reminds me of Dr Samuel Johnson who, when asked about a female preacher, said that "a woman preaching is like a dog walking on its hind legs; it's not done well but you don't expect to see it done at all".
