Courgette stew kills pensioner in Heidelberg

The widow of a 79-year-old man killed by a courgette stew in southern
Germany this week has described the fatal meal that led to her
husband's death.

Who knew? I still don't know. I don't live in Germany.


I don't think Germany has much to do with it.

The
courgettes/zucchinii I've been cooking for 35 years haven't killed me
yet. Nope, I don't and can't have have a garden. I buy them from local
farmers. I'm still alive.


Yep, me too... I *have* eaten some quite bitter pickling cucumbers at
times. Anyway, I never knew that bitter taste was in fact a toxin


Courgettes are not of the cucumber family. It used to be that
cucumbers could be very bitter but hybridization has taken care of
that issue.
