Can You Handle More Zucchini? Oh Yea!

It is at the height of summer, your zucchini plants are pumping out zukes like there is no tomorrow. What to do? I have discovered a great way to use them up. ZUCCHINI KIMCHI! Oh my gosh, it is so good, I will never have zucchini troubles ever again!
Cut zucchinis into 2" long by 1/2" strips. Soak them in salt water for at least 4 hours or overnight. Add grated gingers, minced garlic, fish sauce (Available in Asian stores), a little sugar and hot pepper flakes. Slice some green apples into the mixture. Bag them in a ziplock bag, leave it out for one day, then refrigerate afterwards. Keep in the fridge for up to a week. Great with rice, Raman noodles or whatever. Enjoy!

You can find fish sauce in any Asian grocery stores, it is made from anchovies.
