I've just been out to harvest courgettes for the first time in over a week and they have taken over the garden! The biggest one I have brought in (I left the largest out there just to see how big it will get; it is over 2 feet long already!) is longer than my forearm and wider than it too. Will it taste as nice as a smaller one or do they lose flavour as they get bigger?
they do lose flavour but they are great stuffed or turned into soup 9though there is only much soup you can eat) Alternatively, stick a post-it-note on it 'Free To Good Home' and leave it by your garden gate.
sorry, didnt come back! I just chop in half lenghtways and then into pieces that fit into an oven dish. Scoop out the seeds and fill with a bolognaise sauce. Cover in cheese, foil over the top. Bake for about an hour removing the foil for the last 10 minutes.
