There comes a time every summer where gardeners can't get rid of the things quick enough. Letterboxes are filled with Zucchini from mystery givers, crop swap tables are laden and gardeners grown when they find yet another forgotten vegetable hiding under the vine. 

So what do you do when you have a Summer Zucchini glut other that force them onto visating guests ? 

We like to make Zucchini bread and butter pickles, Dehydrate and powder for winter, make brownies and my favorite
