“Zucchini”: sounds like an Italian sports car, but is actually a sexy Italian vegetable from the giant “Zook” family. Thousands of years ago the Zook family of vegetables intermingled with the “Ini” (as in “ini-weenie”) family of vegetables to produce smaller members. Although, to be honest, some of the members we’ve seen are quite respectable, size-wise. Anyway, to put a stop to all this co-mingling of members, we chop up our zucchini, make relish out of it and then fully contain it in a mingle-proof glass jar. No more funny business, period.
