Cook zucchini with us ! There is no easier way to preserve it all year round.

We also use grated courgette noodles to make breadcrumbs and simple doughnuts, when all the ingredients are mixed together. We then bake the prepared mass not only on a baking sheet, but we can also bake it in a cake form or in a cake form, when we fill the pudding after baking. In addition to sweet pastries, courgettes are also suitable as fillings for savory pies .
