Courgette preserves are one of the most popular and delicious. Courgette caviar, for example, can be eaten on its own or as an accompaniment to main dishes, or as a spread on bread. Traditionally caviar is made with mayonnaise, but it's very easy to do without it by replacing the ingredient with other spices.
