Zukes that's good!

This is a spin an old Russian recipe which was called "Poor Man's Caviar" It is usually done with eggplants, onions and tomatoes.

Well when you have tons of zucchini, squash, eggplant, onions you can only do so much zucchini bread and sauteed vegetables.

So when you want to use up a dozen or so squashes give this one a try.

This one, used up about half dozen crookneck squashes, 3 green zucchinis, 4 Japanese eggplants and about a half a dozen doorknob squashes, I don't remember the real name for them (maybe, pan squash) but they look like doorknobs anyway.

Wash and cut the squashes, dice into 1/2 inch cubes, if round squash, slice into 1/4 inch rounds.

Chop onion into same size pieces.

Heat up 2 TBS of olive oil in large skillet, toss in onion and cook until soft, ( 5 minutes )
add all the zucchinis etc.
Add ketchup,
Add salt and pepper, stir to cover all the cut veggie's with the ketchup.
Cook over medium to low heat for about 1 hour, then take the lid off, check to see that the pieces are soft. Stir with the cover off until some of the liquid is evaporated. Taste and season.
Remove from heat, cool, and that's it!

It is good both hot, room temperature and cold!

Stuff you will need.
1- 1 1/2 cup ketchup
12-16 cups of chopped squashes
1 large yellow onion chopped.
2 tomatoes chopped.
3 to 4 cloves of garlic minced or crushed.
Salt and Pepper
