"This easy and great way to use zucchini was given to me by my Grandmother many years ago and is still requested by friends and family today. Any flavor gelatin will work, but I have found apricot and strawberry to work best."

I've been making this jam for years. It is a jam not a jelly. Jelly is made with only the juice. Anyway be creative and use any flavor of jello you like. Apricot seems to be the favorite. It's easy and sooo delicious. Fun to tell your friends what's in it after they tell you they love it and hate zucchini.

This recipe was actually really good. It has a nice texture and and looks beautiful once canned. I used 1/2 the recipe and only had strawberry/banana Jell-o on hand. Next time i will just use the strawberry to give it a stronger flavor. I will definatly be making this again and giving this away for christmas gifts. I may change the name and just say surprise Strawberry Jelly to make it more appealing for gifts. Thanks;)

This recipe is fantastic. No one could believe it was zucchini. I didn't have enough Strawberry jello - so I used Red Raspberry instead.... Took a jar to work.... it was a big hit! Highly recommend this.... great for gifts
