Recipe by Jan H.

Here is the recipe I use for Zucchini Madelaines. I got it out of Sunset Magazine many years ago. We just love it. I make it every year when zucchini is plentiful, and it freezes well. I serve it as an appetizer, with other munchies. It is like a bread and also goes well with soups.

  1. Mix shredded zucchini with salt in a large bowl.
  2. Let stand about 30 minutes, until zucchini is limp and liquid has drained from it.
  3. Rinse zucchini well, and drain, squeazing out as much water as posibble.

  5. of olive oil into an 8-10 inch frying pan on medium high heat.

  16. If made ahead, let cool, then wrap airtight and chill, up to 24 hours, or freeze to store longer.
