That courgette time of year again – Glut time

So, last year I planted four courgette plantsImage result for courgette plant– all four got eaten by the slugs.  I planted a second lot of four – they too got eaten by the slugs.  No glut last year!  Organic allotmenteering at its worst.

This year, I planted seven plants so that if the slugs chose their favourite four, I would still be left with three….. but due to a hot dry spring, the courgettes prevailed and I am in serious glut land!

As happens in these events, I am hiding it in all food!  The usual places- soup, courgette and mozzarella slice, ratatouille, ragu sauce.

This year a new place – Chocolate cake! mmmmm

Easy Chocolate Custard Sauce Recipe

Just like my mum used to make, and tastes just like school puddings used to, here is a recipe for you all to make a simple and quick Chocolate Sauce.    I made it the other day to go with my Root and Fruit Pudding (a Chocolate and Pear pudding with hidden Beetroot in the Sponge).

(Sorry about a lack of photos at the moment by the way, I will sort it out soon!!)
