ZUCCHINI MARMALADE

This recipe is from an old church cookbook.

6 cups grated zucchini, peeled
No. 2 can crushed pineapple with juice
1 box Sure-Jell
6 cups sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 box (6-oz) apricot gelatin

Mix zucchini and sugar and let stand 10 minutes. Cook 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the crushed pineapple and its juice. Also add the Sure-Jell. Cook another 6 minutes after beginning to boil, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add apricot gelatin. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Put into container and put in freezer or put in hot jelly jars and seal with lids and bands that have been boiled. Be sure jars seal; refrigerate any jars that do not seal.

I didn't plant any zucchini this year and still ended up with more than I knew what to do with. I guess there was a bumper crop this season because friends and neighbors kept leaving bags of zuchs at my door. I followed a recipe very similar to this one and made a big batch of marmalade. No one that's tried it believes that it's made with zucchini. It's very good and cheap to make.

Thanks for sharing your experience. Isn't it nice to have a big batch of marmalade to enjoy made with free zucchini? To all you folks out there, don't let things from your gardens go to waste. Someone will enjoy those goodies!
