The zucchini dish was good, but ... it calls for peeling, seeding, and julienning the zukes. I didn't peel mine, but I did scrape out seeds. In the end I thought this was useless. If it were to do this again, I'd make 1/8" slices of the washed zucchinis, then cut these into 1/8" strips. That would be just as nice, I think. The pile of bits is salted and left to sweat for a while. Mine were a bit short-changed in this area, but I don't think it made any difference. The strips are slowly cooked in butter, then the sour cream/flour mixture is stirred in. When the sauce is thick, add sugar, vinegar, and some chopped fresh dill. Nice flavors altogether. (Lacking guidance, I used cider vinegar, since that was pretty standard in the early 70s.)
