Courgette, Ham and Cheese Fritters

The piece of gammon I roasted at the weekend has lasted pretty well and was very good value for (quite a lot!) of money! But it was good, organic, outdoor-reared pork, so worth it. A large mountain of courgettes led to risotto yesterday, and fritters today, with grated cheddar and shredded ham added to the mix, along with plenty of chopped mint and parsley. Nom nom. Simply grate a couple of courgettes, sprinkle with salt and leave to drain. Squeeze out well with your hands and some kitchen towel. Mix with the ham and cheese, two eggs and two tablespons of flour. I also added a teaspoon of chilli sauce and plenty of pepper - no salt is needed. Just shallow fry in dollops, drain on kitchen paper and serve. I make no apologies for the fact that this is the third - I think - recipe for courgette fritters on here, in one form or another - I like them, OK?! And, they are as cheap as chips - or fritters....
