Just found instructions for baked zucchini chips. Excellent and healthy. Also greatly decreases the volume. Google has a few variations.

I tried 'chips' the other day. While they were tasty they weren't chips- maybe not enough oil??

If anyone has tips or a tried/tested recipes I'd gladly accept info

Try stuffing them, as well. Or using them instead of pasta sheets in lasange, or instead of eggplant for zucchini parm. Peel, theen fine grate ealier on into almost any soup (espcially creamy ones), the zucchini breaks down and becomes practically invisible, great ffor finiky eaters..

Yes but not huge amounts. They seem to especially like ones that have got too big. I cut them open into chunks and they peck at them

Did someone mention vegetti yet? Basically there's a little device that turns the zucchini into spaghetti by shredding it. You then use that instead of regular spaghetti for pasta dishes.

It's the middle of Winter and. I'm actually missing the Zucchini - refuse to buy it but.
Just turned the last Tromboncini gone 'Butternut' into soup and slice. I'm enjoying home made duck and goose egg pasta and have been making and freezing the dough.

Yes we're buying them as the kids will eat them cooked. I'm thinking I might plant some in the vege garden as soon as night time minimums climb over about 12oC. That's probably a month or so here.
