Zucchini Nut Bread
By Bill Wielenbeck on Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 4:02pm

3 large eggs
1 cup of canola or vegetable oil
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
2 cups of light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
3 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans
2 cups of unpeeled zucchini, shredded
Butter and flour or spray two small 8 x 4 inch loaf pans with Flour, Pam or Baker’s joy and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat eggs; add the oil and granulated sugar; beat until blended and thickened. Stir in the brown sugar and add the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, breaking up any flour lumps; stir in the walnuts. Add the zucchini to the brown sugar mixture and stir.
Combine the dry ingredients with the wet and gently mix together; do not beat. Pour evenly into the prepared loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 to 50 minutes (checking first at 40 minutes), or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Do not overcook or the bread will be dry. Let rest for 5 minutes in the pans, then transfer loaves to a rack to cool slightly. Best served warm with honey butter. Let cool completely before storing; store leftovers in the fridge.
Note: One zucchini, about 12-inches in length, should give you about 2 cups shredded. Squeezing the zucchini is not necessary.

Wash and core tomatoes, put in turkey roaster bake at 350 for 1 – 1 1/2 hrs until they are all shriveled, then take and immersible blender (counter top type works fine) and puree them on high, the blender will pulverize the seeds and skins, the sauce should look like what you buy in the jars ant the store. poor them into sterilized jars with lids and rings, process as you usually would with tomatoes, or allow to cool a bit and put in quart and/or pint freezer bags and lay flat in the freezer. To make it more versitile, it’s best to season when you are ready to use.
