Put the above ingredients in a saucepan and bring them to a boil. Then simmer for 15 min. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup of the crumb mixture(recipe follows) and let cool.
Mix together until crumbly and set 1/2 cup aside for the cooked filling. Pour 1/2 of the remaining mixture into a buttered pie pan and press the mixture up the sides of the pan also. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees F. Remove from oven and pour zucchini mixture into the pie crust. Spread the remaining crumb mixture over the zucchini and bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees F. No one knows that this is zucchini if you remove the seeds. I've fooled many friends. Enjoy!

I've never made a dessert with zucchini such as this, but I've heard they're very good, -tastes just like apple pie (if seeds are taken out and peeling is scraped off). I've made zucchini relish (just like pickle relish, but with zucchini instead of cucumbers. I've also made zucchini bread as well as Mock Crab Cakes made with zucchini instead of crab (no one could tell the difference!). One year we had a wonderful garden where we had more zucchini than we knew what to do with. But once I found that I could make them into the relish, no more wondering what we were going to do with it! Thanks for your recipe. Happy Summer! (06/29/2006)
