Featured food of the day Courgettes

Sauteed Zucchini-courgettes with Gruyere cheese recipe here.

A member of the squash family, the courgette or zucchini is a summer squash with tender flesh and seeds and soft edible skin. Courgettes range in size from about 6-15 cm, and baby courgettes have the sweeter flavour. As well as the familiar green type, attractive bright yellow courgettes are also available. When buying either type, look for small (larger courgettes tend to have tougher skins), firm courgettes with smooth unblemished skins and a bright colour. Courgette flowers can also be eaten they are a rich yellow colour and can be coated in batter and deep fried or they can be stuffed and steamed or baked.

Information above and more courgette info can be found here.

All the best Jan
