Well we are! About a month ago a co-worker gave me a HUGE zucchini to make bread with, because mine were still eeny weeny. Well, now we've got an obscene amount. And they're all HUGE! One day I go out & they're not ready to pick, the very next day they have tripled in size! So all I can do is shred them & come up with interesting things to make with them. I've made zucchini chocolate bread, zucchini pineapple bread, zucchini banana bread --- & in my batch of "grandma recipes", I found this --
ZUCCHINI PEACH JELLY/JAM
6 cups shredded peeled zucchini
6 cups sugar
2 T lemon juice
1 can crushed pineapple with juice
2 pkgs peach Jello
In a large pan, combine zucchini, sugar, lemon juice & pineapple with juice; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often, at a full boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in Jello. Spoon into clean jelly jars. Cover & cool, store in fridge.
So easy & apparently, really good. I'm not a fan of zucchini (go figure) but my son & the co-workers I've shared with really like it. I left the shreds of zucchini in, but of course to make it jelly you would strain it out. I'm going to make zucchini strawberry jam next because I also have a ton of strawberries! I've also found a recipe for zucchini strawberry cake, so I'll give that one a go as well.
Let me know if you have any superb zucchini recipes! We love to try new things!
