Zucchini Butter Recipe

I was so excited when I first tried zucchini bread because it tasted like cake. Never in my dreams did I imagine that there could be a zucchini butter. Willy Wonka should look into zucchini because it clearly has serious delicious potential. This recipe can be used as a dip, spread or side dish and is courtesy of Newark Food Markets and Delawonderful.

Zucchini Butter

  • 2 
pounds zucchini or assorted summer squash (feel free to use less or add extra—cooking times will vary)
  • 1/4
 cup olive oil or butter
  • 2
 minced shallots, garlic, or combination of both
  • Salt and pepper

(Makes about 2 cups)

1. Coarsely grate the zucchini. Let it drain in a colander for 3 to 4 minutes or until you are ready to begin cooking. To hasten cooking time, squeeze the water out of the zucchini by wringing it in a clean cloth towel.

2. In a deep skillet, heat the olive oil/butter. Briefly sauté the shallots or garlic. Add the zucchini and toss. Cook and stir over medium to medium-high heat until the zucchini reaches a spreadable consistency, about 15 minutes. If you scorch the bottom, turn the flame down! (And scrape those delicious bits into the butter for added flavor—you can splash in a little water to help deglaze the pan.) The zucchini will hold its bright green color and slowly caramelize into a nice vegetable jam.

3. Enjoy!
