    Oh no, bitter courgettes! 13th Sep 17 at 8:48 PM

    I made a big veggie lasagne for tea but some of the courgette that I used (donated by a work colleague) was really bitter and tasted awful. I am loathe to throw it out, the intention was to eat half and freeze the rest but I guess it cant be rescued. There is a lot of courgette in there.

    Stupid question but should I have been able to tell somehow that this courgette was going to taste bad or have I just been unlucky?

    When courgettes are bitter, I find salting them well makes them taste amazing so could you try that?
