Mock Apple Crisp

Doesn’t this Autumny apple crisp look delicious?  Well, if you thought those were apples you’d be  WRONG!  Believe it or not, this is a picture of my sister’s “mock apple” crisp, which uses not apples, but ZUCCHINI!  (Great way to use up all the excess zucchini from your garden, right?)  Here we go!

First, to turn all that zucchini into “apples”!

8 Cups Zucchini, peeled, seeded, and chopped into “apple-like” chunks or slices

3/4 Cup Lemon Juice

1 Cup Sugar

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Nutmeg

1 Tbsp Cornstarch

Boil zucchini pieces in lemon juice until tender (about 15 minutes).  Add sugar, spices, and cornstarch and simmer another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Let cool slightly.

To make “crisp” topping, cut together with a pastry blender:

1 Stick Cold Butter (1/2 Cup)

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Cup Oats

1 tsp Cinnamon

Pour your mock apple mixture into a 9×13 baking dish and sprinkle crisp topping crumbs evenly over all.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until top looks slightly browned.  Enjoy hot with ice cream!
