      Excellent way to use up zucchini! I thought I had made every type of jam until I found this recipe. I followed the instructions exactly, and it turned out fine. It looked like it wasn't going to set up, but I think it will as stated in the directions. I used strawberry jello, and it is very good.

      Serena this jam recipe is great! I had a large zucchini to use up and wanted to make jam and I chose yours. The only changes I made were: After cooking the shredded zucchini for 6 minutes and then adding the sugar, lemon juice,and pineapple I used my immersion blender and whipped up those ingredients because I didn't want shreds of zucchini and chunks of pineapple. I also used peach jello. This looks so pretty in the jar kinda like apple butter. Thanks so much for posting!
