Another "mock" apple pie

This "mock" apple pie uses  ZUCCHINI, and no one will ever know, if you don't tell them.  I always cut the zucchini length-wise into fourths before slicing.  This will produce the same basic shape as sliced apples.


Zucchini Apple Pie

4 - 5 c. sliced zucchini, peeled & seeded
2 T. apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 T. cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
Pie crust

Cover zucchini with vinegar and let set 30 minutes.  Add sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon.  Place in pie crust and top with crust.  Slit top crust to vent.  Bake at 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.



Re: Another "mock" apple pie

my mother used to make this same pie with green pumpkins that had gotten knocked off the vine and were going to go to waste, it was pretty good, with both though you can tell it isn't apple but it is a tasty substitute

Interesting!  I vaguely remember having heard of this kind of recipe before.  I would now gladly TRADE some apples for zucchini.  My MIL has loaded trees with apples falling off, left and right.
