    I’d venture to say a medium zucchini is probably pretty close to the size you would find in a grocery store, they are generally uniform in size.

    Is this sweet enough? It has 17g of sugar, but is 1/4c apple sauce enough to make it palatable?

  • ztupp

    Did you notice that it also calls for 1 1/2 cups of sugar. I’m thinking that I will reduce that amount when I try the recipe.

  • Amanda

    Can you make this in a regular blender jar? If so, how? Thanks

  • Becky

    I would guess 2 cups.
