Here are more great dishes from the Seville Farm Market Zucchini Smackdown.

Zucchini Cobbler
By Miranda Huttinger

(We halved this recipe.)

8 cups chopped, seeded, peeled zucchini
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg


4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups cold butter, cubed
1 tsp. ground cinnamon


In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, cook and stir zucchini and lemon juice for 15-20 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Add the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; simmer one minute longer. Remove from heat; set aside.

For crust, combine flour and sugar in a bowl; cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir 1/2 cup into zucchini mixture. Press half of remaining crust mixture into a greased 15-by-10-by-1 baking pan. Spread zucchini over top; crumble remaining crust mixture over zucchini. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Yield 16-20.
