“Whenever you have a bumper crop of zucchini squash, make a batch of this mock strawberry jam. Tastes like the real thing! Your family and friends will never know the difference unless you tell them.” - by Patricia Canerdy
Original recipe yields 6 half-pint jars
- Stir the zucchini and sugar together in a large pot over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture begins to boil, about 10 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and gelatin, and continue simmering 5 minutes more, stirring constantly.
- Ladle the hot jam into 6 hot, sterilized half-pint canning jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Wipe the rim and jar threads with a clean, damp cloth. Center lid on jar and screw the ring down firmly. Place into a boiling water canner covered by 2 inches of boiling water. Process for 10 minutes. Remove from the canner, and allow to cool to room temperature, and refrigerate any jars that do not seal.

"This is a soft serve jam, since it does not use pectin. It tasted pretty good, except it was a little on the sweet side. Cool thing is, since it does not need pectin, you can scale down the sugar a bi..." See moret if needed. I might do 3 to 4 c. of sugar rather than 5 next time. It's a good recipe, it's a keeper for sure."
"We decided to try this.....and I have to say it was a success. My sister-in-law called me today and told me it was the best "strawberry" jam she has ever tasted.....I didn't tell her it was zucchini...." See more I did peel, seed and puree the zucchini and added about 1/2 box of pectin - just to make sure it would set up. Thanks for the great recipe. I will make it again."
