      One of our favourite meals is a sweet and sour courgette, and we normally serve it with pork, but any meat will do. We enjoy this dish either hot or cold.

      For the sweet and sour courgettes this will serve up to 6 people you will need the following:

      900g / 2lbs Courgettes each preferably 5cm / 2 inches long Coarse-grained sea salt 50g / 2 oz small dark seedless raisins 75ml / 3fl oz aged red wine vinegar 5 tablespoons extra virgin


      olive oil 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon 2 tablespoons of aromatic honey diluted with 4 tablespoons of hot water 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper.

      For serving 1 small bunch of flat leaf parsley leaves coarsely chopped 1 tablespoon of dried oregano, briefly pounded in a mortar

      To start with you need to trim the courgettes make sure the pieces are no bigger than 5cm long and 1cm thick. Once cleaned and trimmed lightly salt them. Next you need to put the vinegar ...


      • and raisins into a non-metallic bowl.

        Next put the olive oil into a pan that will be big enough to hold the courgettes, warm the olive oil the add the courgettes in one layer and sauté them on a low heat till they are tender, I find that this normal take in the region of 8 minutes if the pieces aren’t to large. Gentle stir the courgettes so they are evenly cooked.

        Next you can sprinkle the cinnamon over the courgettes. Now

        add the raisins and vinegar, and then add the honey and warm water and the pepper. Now you can mix them all in until the sauce becomes slightly like syrup, don’t worry if this take a few minutes I normal find 3 minutes is about right.

        Transfer the courgettes to the serving dish and pour over the sauce then sprinkle the parsley and oregano.

        We love this dish and even our 3-year son has started to eat it and he is really fussy. I hope you enjoy it to
