Makes 15 biscuits

3/4 cup zucchini, grated (about 1 small zucchini)
2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 cup grated cheddar
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 stick butter, cold and cubed
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

Grate the zucchini.  Using a cheese cloth, add the zucchini to the center and squeeze all of the excess water out. Transfer to a small bowl and add 1/2 teaspoon salt and a dash of flour. Mix and let stand for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Working quickly, add the cubed butter and break up with your hands until they're the size of small peas.

Add the milk, zucchini and cheddar until moistened.  Drop batter, using two tablespoons, on a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Serve warm with pat of butter.
