Covid Cafe: Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Today Holly sent us a recipe for chocolatey muffins. She writes: These are so moist and delicious. They freeze well, but they don't last long wherever they are stored!

We're trialing seeds from Row 7...
We are a seed company grounded in the notion that deliciousness might just change the world. A seed company built by chefs and breeders striving to make ingredients taste better before they ever hit a plate.

It’s a collaboration—a cross-pollination—based on a simple premise: we believe flavor can succeed where commodification has failed. That it can change how we eat and, in turn, how we grow.
Created by chef Dan Barber, breeder Michael Mazourek, and seedsman Matthew Goldfarb, Row 7 aspires to grow far beyond our founders. We work in the field and kitchen alongside chefs, breeders, growers and eaters who share our mission to reimagine food from the ground up. More here.

A new chapter for the heirloom tromboncino, and an answer to ho-hum zucchini. Young green squash were selected for their sweet, nutty flavor and meaty texture. 70 days to harvest.
