Zapple Pie Filling

This filling tastes just like apples and can be used in pies, crisps and cobblers. It can be frozen for later use.

1 large baseball-bat size zucchini, peeled, seeded and cut into 1" chunks (about 8 cups), 1/3 cup lemon juice, 1 1/2 cups sugar (divided), 2 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1/2 cup flour.

Mix zucchini chunks and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir for several minutes until tender. Add 1 cup sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to zucchini. Stir and cook for 2 minutes more. Turn the heat to low; add the additional 1/2 cup sugar and flour and stir until thickened. Ready to use in your dessert recipe or freeze for a later use in a freezer bag or Tupperware style container with a lid.
