Cookery- Slow Cooked Courgettes

Slow cooked courgettes (serves 4)

This is the recipe I come back to time and time again during the summer months when courgettes are in abundance.

8 firm, medium-sized unblemished courgettes

40g unsalted butter

2 tbsp mild-tasting extra-virgin olive oil

3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

2 sprigs of tarragon, leaves only and chopped

Sea salt and black pepper

Wash and pat dry the courgettes.

Slice into fine rounds.

Place the butter and oil in a medium-sized, heavy-based saucepan and melt over a low heat.

Add the garlic, courgettes and a good pinch of salt.

Stir well to combine.

Cover and cook, stirring from time to time, until the courgettes have reduced to a thick, mushy almost jam-like


Taste and adjust the seasoning – it will undoubtedly need a little more salt and plenty of pepper.

Stir in the tarragon leaves, drizzle in a little more oil and serve.
