Hello faithful members! Just in time for all that extra zucchini in your garden (or farmer's market) its.... The Pie of the MONTH!
This month: "tastes like apple" ZUCCHINI PIE
potmc old-timers may note that this is the 3rd (third!) pie of the month that claims to "taste like apple". Seems that "apple" is the "chicken" of the pie "world"... y'all will have to figure all that out yourselves, quotations and all

You'll need:
9" unbaked double crust
2-3 med. zucchini, peeled, seeded, cut into 1/4" (1cm) thick slices (6 cups sliced)
2 TB lemon juice
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 TB flour
2 TB cornstarch
1/4 cup butter, cut into 1/4" cubes
preheat oven to 400 F. Boil zucchini 3-4 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain & rinse in cold water. Toss with lemon juice. Set aside. In a small bowl combine dry ingredients, toss with zucchini slices & spoon into crust. Dot with butter cubes. Add top crust, seal and vent. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown
Tasteeee!
