Zucchini Fritters

I just harvested my NINTH zucchini from my community garden plot. I think its absolutely incredible that you can look one day and they are too small to pick and the next day they have grown exponentially. So I've been trying some different recipes and uses even though zucchini is best in baked goods. (at least that's what I believe)

This recipe uses 4 zucchini and best of all the fritters can be frozen on wax paper on a cookie sheet and then transferred to a ziploc to be reheated in the oven at a later date. They were very tasty but personally I might add a bit of garlic or a little more onion.

Zucchini Fritters
4 medium zucchini
1/2 medium onion
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup flour
2 eggs
Pepper- freshly ground
Oil for frying ( I used olive oil )

Grate zucchini and onion and place in a bowl. Toss with salt and let sit for 10 minutes.
Wring the mixture out by wrapping it in a clean tea towel and twisting over the sink. Try to get out as much water as possible.
Mix together other ingredients and drop small scoops of zucchini into a heated fry pan. Fry until golden brown. Cool and eat immediately or flash freeze for later enjoyment.
I'm off to check the garden again. Maybe it will be time to find a NEW zucchini recipe today.
PS. Just spotted the first change of colour to orange in the cherry tomatoes. Once they hit, its going to be an avalanche.
