I received this from my grandmother 30 years ago who's long since passed and I've been making it ever since. Your home will smell amazing and your taste buds will love you! It's a family favorite and is requested by my kids and grand kids alike. I freeze the zucchini fresh from my garden, grated and measured for each batch so that I can make it throughout the year, especially through the colder months. Give it a try and let me know what you think. It really is an amazingly flavorful bread. Even if you don't like zucchini, I think you'll become a fan of this bread.
