Jenny's recipes from the veg patch

This time of year if all goes to plan you might find yourself with a glut of courgettes from your garden or allotment. Read on for Jenny’s two favourite recipes, Cheesy Courgette Fritters and Courgette Ribbons with Feta Cheese, made with veg and herbs from her own Great Grow Your Own Competition patch.

Millbrook top tip! Pick courgettes when they are smaller, around 10-12.5cm for the best flavour. The flowers and leaves are also edible and are delicious added to Summer salads.
