Zucchini Jam

Print Friendly

What to do with all that zucchini you have froze, canned, dehydrated, made breads, pies and all kinds of stuff well make some jam.

 
Start by cutting and deseeding your zucchini. Then grate your zucchini. I grate a lot so I can do several batches at a time.
 
 
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. 

 
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 with out but not as firm]
 At first it will look like it isn’t enough liquid but it will be. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. .  

 
 
 
I do strawberry, peach, berry blue, grape, and orange, they are all good but my favorite is the peach and strawberry.
