Apricot Zucchini Crumble Recipe


Local fresh apricots are available through the summer, and can be eaten plain or used in desserts, cakes, pies, salads, and of course jams and jellies. For cooks in a hurry, apricots are a good choice, since they dont need to be peeled and are split and pitted easily. This delicious Apricot Zucchini Crumble uses fresh apricots to advantage, and as a bonus calls for zucchini, which is most likely in the garden waiting to be used. Since the zucchini is quickly peeled before being diced, it is not recognizable, so those who profess to hate zucchini will still love this Apricot Zucchini Crumble.

Apricots contain Vitamins A and C, so even though this is dessert, there are some valuable nutrients contained within. In fact, this crumble even contains much needed fiber. The zucchini dices absorb the flavor of the apricots and other ingredients; they add body to the dessert and stay crisp tender. It will be one zucchini secret that is easy to keep.

Crumbles are very popular in Great Britain, so if a Harry Potter party is in the making, this dessert is a great choice. Make sure its served with plenty of freshly whipped heavy cream or highest quality ice cream.

2 pounds fresh apricots, washed, pitted, and quartered
1 pound zucchini, peeled and diced
