            I have used Splenda for recipes like this but cut back about 1/4 of the called for amount.

                The problem with Zucchini is it grows way too well and makes way too many ....lets face it it's squash and you run out of friends who will willingly take the stuff. People avoided me to the point of running away. I even tried Zucchini Pickles...not that good....trust me. You grow it....you eat it...I'm done with the stuff.

                  If perhaps you have more Zucchini than ammo or desire for RD's delicious bread will support, than you need to try this on for size...

                  Deep fried zucchini (or for that matter squash and egg-plant).

                  Frying Batter:

                  INGREDIENTS:
                  1/2 cup corn starch
                  1/2 cup Besan flour (our favorite for this recipe, but any all purpose flower is also acceptable)
                  1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
                  1 1/2 teaspoon salt
                  1 dash sugar
                  1/2 cup milk
                  1/4 cup water
                  DIRECTIONS:
                  Combine dry ingredients well. Add liquid and blend thoroughly.
                  Cheetos, Flaming Hot type are preferred, (Frito's corn chips, cheese curls/balls or your favorite spicy crackers are also very acceptable) toss a bag in the food possessor and make small crumbles of them.
                  Coat the pealed sliced or quartered zucchini with flower then dip in the batter follow by coating thoroughly-evenly with the crumbles.
                  Deep fry at about 325*F until tender and golden-reddish brown. Remove and allow to drain on paper-towels and cool to something that won't leave blistering (about 10 minutes, thickness dependent).

                  Dipping sauce:
                  Here in The Old North State, The hot sauce is Texas Pete, but your favorite may likely do almost as well.
                  Makes about 4+ ounces.
                  Hot sauce to taste, generally 1 or 2 tsp.
                  2-3 tbls lime juice.
                  3+ tbls butter or soft type margarine.
                  1-2 tbls White/clear corn syrup.
                  1 to 2 tsp. water.
                  1/2 to 1 tsp salt
                  1/2 to 1 tsp pepper
                  1/2 to 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (more to taste).
                  combine and microwave to melt and just warm the mix.
                  Additional's to taste...
                  Some red pepper flakes/seeds.
                  Finely chopped jalapeno.
                  A splash of chicken stock or small dollop of schmaltz.

                  Enjoy!
