Not this year but about 10 years ago, I had a zucchini plant that tried to "take over the world." It was so prolific, I had to invent something that tasted good with zucchinis in it (besides zucchini bread)....
So I chopped up lots of zicchini (not peeled) and mixed it (about 4 cupfuls or so) with different flavors of canned pie filling. I cooked it to combine the flavors and ended up with something that tasted just like the pie filling flavor and used it as an ice cream topper and also as jam. I probably added stevia or Splenda but am not sure.
Someone gave me 2 large zucchinis today and that is what I am going to do with it.
However, I actually like the flavor of it stir fried or baked in the oven with olive oil, also.
P.S. A lady from the Farm Bureau said this could not be canned as it was not acid enough, but I kept it in the fridge and even tried freezing some extra I had. It probably keeps in the fridge about 3-4 weeks.
