When we lived on the farm when I was a kid, my mom and grandmother were always canning something - whatever was in season. One of the big canning sessions involved zucchini (whose garden doesn't have lots of that?), tomatoes, onions and celery. This staple was an appetizer, a side dish and spaghetti sauce. I loved it! Later, after we moved to Florida, my mom would buy DelMonte canned zucchini - which by the way - was just as good as the homemade stuff. It seems like the grocery doesn't always have it, but the last time it was on sale I stocked up on a dozen cans and stashed them away. Every now and then I open one and eat it for lunch - straight from the can, just like I did today. Childhood comfort food at its best!
