Use Zucchini as Apple or Pineapple Slices

contest winner icon
This is one of the neatest things for using extra zucchini. You can use those large ones no one wants or regular sized ones in place of apple or pineapple slices in pie or cake recipes.

Peel zucchini, and cut lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and the mealy center. Slice into 1/2 inch pieces and place in pot with 2/3 cup of lemon juice (bottled or fresh). Bring to a simmer, and cook for about 20 minutes. The slices will become somewhat opaque, smell and look like apples. Add sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon and use as apples in your own recipes.

For pineapple flavor, simply substitute pineapple juice for the lemon juice.

Great idea - I've still got some of last years in the freezer. :)

This works like a charm. I made an "apple" crisp cobbler using this method and it would have fooled anyone. Absolutely delicious.
