Courgette and ricotta muffins

We had a picnic at Iken Cliff Car park, looking at this view of the Alde estuary and Iken Church.

It’s glut time for courgettes as our Orford Country Market courgette plants are doing well. The Poundland pots, the Tomorite feeds and copious watering has obviously done the trick. We ate courgette muffins, from the book, ‘Gifts from your garden, 100 gorgeous homegrown presents’ by Debora Robertson. I asked for this book for my birthday after meeting Debora and it’s wonderful. Full of things I would like to make, including quince vodka, chilli jams and scented sugars.

Another way of cooking courgettes which I have only recently tried is to cook them really slowly in olive oil with garlic for about forty minutes, stirring from time to time so they don’t stick. It’s soft and comforting and good with fish and I liked it cold as well.
