And I thought that I was the only one that ate zucchini pickles! We pick the
zucchini when they get to about 7 or eight inches. Every now and then one
gets away from us and we turn that into zucchini bread. Try pecans in the
bread sometime. Tasty!! Also good is picking Zucchini or yellow crooked
neck squash when flower is still intact and squash is barely formed for stir
fry fixings.

I don't think so. I was able to find it at my local grocery store in the pickling section....I had never heard of it either but they had it....I think it aids in the crisp ness of the pieces.

alright - i'll take a look! i know that my parents used to use ALUM in pickling, which was also for crispness - i'll see if this might be the same thing or if they are two different things.
