ZUCCHINI JAM

ZUCCHINI JAM

What to do with all that zucchini you have frozen, canned, dehydrated, made breads, pies and all kinds of stuff well how about making some jam. My sister always asked for some of this when she comes up or when someone goes down there.

Start by cutting and deseeding your zucchini. Then grate your zucchini. I grate a lot so I can do several batches at a time. You don’t have to peel, just take off the bad spots.

ZUCCHINI JAM RECIPE

Put 6 cups grated zucchini in a pan and add 1/4 cup lemon juice. Cook for about 10 minutes until the zucchini is clear.

ZUCCHINI JAM Step1

Add 5 1/2 cups sugar and 1 can of crushed pineapple. (If you want a real firm jam you can add a package of sure-jell. It will set up without but not as firm).

ZUCCHINI JAM Step2

At first it will look like it isn’t enough liquid but there will be. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. .

ZUCCHINI JAM Step3

Turn heat off and add, 2 3oz boxes or 1 6oz box of any flavor Jello. Stir in , then bring back to boil for 1 minute, pour into hot sterilized pint or half pint jars, put hot lids and rings on.  Process in a boiling hot water bath for 10 minutes.

ZUCCHINI JAM Step4

I do strawberry, peach, berry blue, grape, and orange, they are all good but my favorites are the peach and strawberry.  They look so pretty when done.
