1196 tasting notes

I REALLY wish the notes on here would have some semblance of organization…having your own listed first would be marvelous. I’m trying to find out if I ever coldbrewed this before, I’ve logged this tea five times but because the first time was in 12/11, that comes up first, and because it barely has any likes, it bumps me all the way to the FIFTH FREAKIN PAGE. In fact last time I logged it I bitched about this.

Answer: I coldbrewed it after the first time trying it. Guess I better commit that to memory now.

So I got this going last night when I realized I finished off a gallon of the pink lemonade iced tea already.

If you bought tea from me, it’s going out tomorrow. It was going to today but after I ate breakfast I felt like hell and my stomach is now realizing what’s happening (I’m doing a Whole 30) and oh it was not fun until about 3:30pm.

Then all I felt like doing was going to my garden and seeing what was grown…I had another huge zucchini. In 4 days I’ve picked 30 ounces of zucchini. I’ve picked 3 jalapenos too. There’s a lot of standing water in the mulch around the plots and it’s attracting mosquitos :( I got so many bites and I was only there less than 10 minutes! The deluge of rain lately has really screwed everyone’s tomato plants…they all look horrid on the bottom halves. I hope they’ll be okay. I’ve got some little bell peppers and cucumbers on the way soon.

I ate a lettuce wrap burger that I knew would be okay to eat because otherwise I was definitely not gonna eat nearly enough food for the day…and finally felt okay ot nap. That felt good, but I slept till 7:30 hahaha. So finally after that I got around to getting this out of the fridge. For being in there about 24 hours it didn’t get gross.

I. LOVE. IT. I need to do this more often. I think I far prefer it this way. It seems less bergamot-y and more fruity with a nice creamy vanilla flavor too.

Too bad I only made a quart of it and I’m already polishing it off.

PS anyone have any ideas of how to eat zucchini I’m already tired of it :(

I dislike zucchini, but my family loves it. So try eating it raw with lemon pepper on it. Baking it into zucchini bread or muffins, put it in any kind of stir fry or casserole, shred it into a coleslaw.

bread stuff is off limits for now :( but I did see a recipe for brownies that involves zucchini that will be back in later, and I’m sure I’ll still be picking zucchini then. I’ve actually never eaten it raw so I’m going to have to try that! I always saute it and for some reason raw it has never appealed to me, but at the same time I’ve never actually tried it to know for sure.

Zucchini tater tots or pancakes! Or hollow out larger ones, add spicy sausage, marinara and parmesan then bake. Or dice into fry sized strips, coat with egg and panko/parmesan blend with lemon pepper then bake on a cookie tray. Om nom nom!

Dice or slice them, blanch them, cool them and freeze them. :) Then you can eat something else for a bit and no food is wasted.

I envy the time you get to spend in your garden. I don’t get home from work until the Mosquitos come out. I’m certainly not doing any gardening then!
As for zucchini, you can make a nice light soup. Onion, garlic, broth, zucchini. Cook. Blend. Cream if you want. Eat.
You can add whatever flavors suit your fancy. Also nice chilled.
And just another shout out to zucchini pancakes. With feta. So tasty.

I tried to do a whole 30 in January, I maybe made it two weeks and definitely had a few chocolates in there, lol. I’d like to try again sometime!!

I’m waiting for my veggie garden to start growing. For zucchini I’ve used a julienne peeler to make “noodle” for chicken “zoodle” soup, or with an avocado cilantro sauce…. You could maybe layer it like you would eggplant to make lasagna too!
I didn’t read the other comments yet so I apologize if these have already been suggested :)

momo

I think combining everyone’s ideas is going to be best…chop up, freeze, make these pancakes in the future. Also in the future: not let these silly zucchini grow so much!

I wish the garden had benches or something because it’s such a nice spot. But man the mosquitos were not fun. That was the middle of the afternoon too, I thought I’d be safe! But the standing water was that bad :( I’m waiting for the stuff on my patio to grow. I at least have all the herbs available but I’m kind of disappointed that the tomato plants there have just grown upward and done nothing otherwise. Maybe someone sprayed around there for bees without saying anything :[

I love to make stir fry with shrimp, onions, bok choy and zucchini; and zucchini-potato latkes with tzatziki!

Mercuryhime

You can also cook zucchini blossoms. Nip that problem in the bud… Literally! :D

momo

I’ve had them tempura fried before…I have been so tempted to pick some of them on the ones on my patio since they had so many more but now I think it’s purposely dropping ones way too early on me on purpose. Though zucchini from there will actually be a normal size so clearly I need to go after the garden ones haha.

Grate them and pat dry. Mix in a few beaten eggs,salt and pepper pepper and fry like latkes. I’d experiment with pancake batter, grated zucchini, lemon and cardamom.

Grilled zucchini is delicious!
