Kenmore Honored Harvest Time entry by Cinnamon Weinman, Iowa State Fair

What inspired this recipe was my mom. Cooking is her hobby and passion. Of all the 100s of recipes she has created this has been one of our family’s favorites. She has been making this recipe for over 30 years now. She would always make this recipe for our family meals & now I make it for my family & bring it to family get togethers & church picnics. While growing up we always had a large veggie garden. In it we always grew zucchini. This is just one of many recipes she created to use the large quantities of zucchinis we would grow. This recipe is special to me because it reminds me of those summers growing up & picking the fresh zucchini & other vegetables from our garden & making delicious meals for our family.
