Yes, you read correctly, strawberry jam meets zucchini while partying with pineapple. The result – fantastic! When I sent out a plea for more ways to use up my zucchini surplus, Sweet Pea from the blog answered the call. She very casually mentioned that she had a few zucchini recipes on her site if I would like to check them out. And lo and behold, it was a zucchini gold mine! One of the recipes that quickly got my attention was this . I thought….weird. Then I saw that it would use 6 cups of zucchini, and I had to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! Everyone who has tried it has given it a thumbs up. Even my Grandma (who claims she doesn’t like zucchini) ate an entire jar in just a few days! (a jelly jar size, not like a quart or anything)
6 Cups grated zucchini (squeeze to remove excess water)
1/2 Cup lemon juice
1 large can crushed pineapple (juice and all)
1 (6oz) package Jello, any flavor (I used strawberry, but have orange waiting in the cabinet!)
Boil zucchini and sugar for 20 minutes. Add lemon juice and crushed pineapple. Boil for 5 minutes. Add gelatin and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat, pour into hot jars and seal. Process in water bath for 5 minutes. Makes 6 jelly jars (half pints?).
**Five cups of sugar instead of 6 worked just fine, and this is definitely a keeper recipe!
