Think I will go and rake up some leaves in the garden.

Have had a large crop of courgettes and find it difficult to store them. Has any one any tips to stop them going of.

Very quiet here!

You're lucky - it's pouring down here:-(

In my opinion throw them straight in the toilet and cut out the middle man. I hate them!!

You can freeze courgettes, but it's not worth the effort - they will become mushy and unpalatable. Eat them while they're fresh, and then throw away the surplus, there's no way of storing them effectively.

Lots of onions, (tinned)tomatoes, and chopped courgettes > Sautee in butter or oil, (onions first) > season lightly.

Lots of, old, clean jam jars > heat in the oven at about 120'C for 30 minutes > fill with the hot, now, Pasta Sauce > put a small circle of greaseproof paper on the top > seal while still hot > store in a cool dark place.

Algerian peter, never mind the courgettes, I hope that you are recycling your raked-up leaves, so's you can make some lovely leaf-mold ... [hint:] 20 black bin-bags full of leaves [ if stored appropriately for about 2 years ] will rot down to 1 bagful of the 'precious stuff' !

wee eddie, would glass coffee jars be ok to store your home-made 'Pasta Sauce' as I don't have any 'jamjars'?
