Recipe By:Patricia Canerdy
"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."

Ingredients

  • 5 cups peeled and shredded zucchini
  • 5 cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry flavored Jell-O(R)

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
