Wow Peter my mouth is watering! I never knew what went into that sauce and now I know. :)

One question - when you store it for the month, does it need to be refridgerated?

(where's the drooling icon when you need it?) :shock:

You mature at (one matures at?) room temperature. The vinegar is enough to prevent contamination. I suppose you're after leaching out the last bits of goodness from the bits and pieces floating around in the stew, but there may be more to it than that ... perhaps there is actually a blending or maturation going on.

Big surprise yesterday when, stacked under the counter of a local small greengrocer's, I spotted a thick bunch of basil. Will go out to buy more pinenuts and olive oil in a moment, and make Spaghetti Pesto - my favourite summer pasta.

Today we had the first rain for several months. I must have had a premonition yesterday as I felt like comfort food and made a French onion soup with red wine and cheese croutons.

Our new kitchen has finally been installed so we can cook again - for almost a year we haven't had a decent kitchen. Not ideal when you're a foodie! To celebrate, we bought a new Maltese cookbook, which has some interesting recipes and gives the names of fish and veg in Maltese and English, very helpful for shopping!

The cookbook has a recipe for seafood risotto, which I've always wanted to try. I make risotti often; my favourite is probably pumpkin risotto with sage.

Peter, your sauce sounds lovely. I've only ever had the Lea & Perrins bottled sauce, which is nice but yours must be gorgeous. What do you use it for, other than cheese on toast? ;)

Gesine, if I'm ever in the neighborhood, can I come eat at your house?

It's said the world is getting smaller!! Maybe we could meet at Peter's?

I could bring the green fried tomatoes! (for a southern cooking contribution).

Ah... it's the time of year when we have to lock our car doors so that we don't find extra zucchini on our front seats....

*goes to make zucchini bread*

Gesine,

I use the Worcestershire sauce for cheese on toast (on top of the layer of tomato ketchup!), with stuffed mushrooms, and almost anything which is served fried or oily, to cut through the oil. It can go into clear soups, too, but this needs a little experimentation, because you don't want the sauce to predominate.

Peter

hehe... this is a multi-layered statement... I live in a place where we rarely bother to lock our car (or house) doors... and many people have vegetable gardens in the summer... zucchini is so prolific that we all end up with way too much of it and people are always trying to give it away... and when they get desperate, folks have been known to leave "gifts" of zucchini where ever they can (we found a pile of zucchini and other squash on our back porch last week)... :D

... and the zucchini bread turned out pretty well... we are also constantly looking for new recipes for using zucchini... i'll probably make some zucchini brownies soon too... this is how i like my vegetables... mixed with chocolate *grins*

My mom sent zucchini bars a couple weeks ago. She used a bread recipe but frosted them with a cream cheese frosting. Really good. She usually does it with pumpkin but we both ended up with huge zucchini this year so we've been trying to figure out what to do with it. I'm planning on making a lot of bread and freeze most of it. (They are over a foot long and bigger around than a softball. I've never seen zucchini this large.)

Hee hee just for an experiment, I let one zucchini grow and grow. I think it got to over 2 feet long and probably a good 6 inches think. It wouldn't be edible but who cares when theres more zucchini around then you can eat anyways?

I also add chocolate (cocoa power) to my muffins. Just reduce the flour by 1/2 the amount of cocoa you want to put in and increase the sugar a little. SOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!! :D

Here's a recipe for all of you to help get rid of some them pesky courgettes...

It's kind of like a Welsh Rabbit with zucchini, and you can use the Peter's Worchestershire sauce in it and on it.

-- Zucchini and Cheese on Toast --

Ingredients-

2 zucchini, grated
1 1/2 cups finely grated mature Cheddar cheese
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 medium egg, beaten (use a larger egg for larger zucchini)
1 tsp Worchestershire sauce (I use more, about a tablespoon)
4 - 6 slices bread, toasted (needs to be substantional enough to hold the mixture, like homestyle loafs)
salt and pepper to taste

Method-

Put the grated zucchini in a clean, dry dishtowel and twist tightly, squeezing out all the liquid.
Mix all the ingredients (except the bread) together in a bowl. Blend them by hand till they're well mixed. It should be moist with the egg acting like the glue to hold it together when it's cook, but not an omolette.
Spread the mix on the toast and broil until they are golden brown.

If you're generous with the mixture like I am, you might want to bake them a little first to make sure the egg is well cooked, then broil them to make'um nice and golden brown.

Enjoy :)
