Lemon Zucchini Bread is the perfect recipe for this time of year. Now I am pretty sure that you have a neighbor that has extra zucchini.  And if you are not sure what to to with it why not try and make some lemon zucchini bread?

I love the taste of lemon, and this bread is so nice and moist and loaded with flavor.

Also if you do not care for poppy seeds, you can leave them out, however I just love the way this bread tastes with them. Also you will barely see the little flecks of zucchini, in your bread.

Can I Use Large Zucchini In Zucchini Lemon Bread?

  • Monster zucchini are totally impressive to look at, but they are not as flavorful as smaller zucchini.
  • But that is not to say that you can’t eat these massive zucchini that grow in your garden or that you find at the farmers market.
  • You can eat them.
  • Just stay away from making salads with them.
  • They have large seeds and a higher water content, which makes for a pulpy texture.
  • They benefit from longer cook times, like being stewed, roasted, and baked into delicious bread or pastries.

 

Can Poppy Seeds Cause a Positive Drug Test?

  • Poppy Seeds can contain high enough levels of the opioid to trigger a positive result on some types of drug urine tests.
  • Even though most of the opium is removed from the poppy seeds during processing, sometimes, the seeds sold for use in foods still have a significant amount of opium – and thus morphine – in them.
  • There is not enough to make a person “high”, but enough that could trigger a positive drug test result.
  • For this reason most drug tests have been modified so that a positive result will not happen.
