half teaspoon of salt
2 pounds of zucchini, peeled, seeded, and cut into julienne strips 1/8 of an inch wide and about 3 inches long
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of flour
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 teaspoons of vinegar
1 teaspoon of fresh dried dill (to taste)
Sprinkle salt over the zucchini in a mixing bowl and let stand for a half hour. Next spread the strips on paper towels and pat them dry. Melt the butter in a 1 1/2 quart saucepan when the foam subsides add the zucchini. Toss about in the butter with a spoon or spatula until well coated, then cover the pan, turn the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes or until barely tender. Don’t over cook.
With a wire whisk beat the flour into the sour cream, pour the mixture over the zucchini, and stirring gently, simmer 2 to 3 minutes, until the sauce is thick and smooth. Finally stir in the sugar, vinegar, and dill, and taste for appropriate seasoning. Enjoy!
