Mock Apple Zucchini Pie
Using zucchini instead of apples.
Pastry, for single or double crust pie, as desired
4 to 5 cups zucchini (peeled and seeded)
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch or flour
Slice zucchini like you would a apple.
Cover with boiling water, boil 2 minutes; drain and set aside until cool.
Mix dry ingredients.
Gently toss with the cooled zucchini.
Place into a unbaked pie shell, place top crust (if using) on, crimp edge and vent.
