Harry's Zucchini Ginger Marmalade

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is my brother Harry's recipe (except for the addition of the ginger) and it is great flavored marmalade for toast or glaze a chicken with it. Economical and very tasty.If you don't like ginger leave it out this how his original recipe was. Harry's a good cook so trust me this is a great spread.

This is so good. I halved the recipe with no problem.I was hesitant to use gelatin so I used powdered pectin instead. And I peeled only half of the zucchinis. This marmalade has such a lovely ginger flavor mingled with the citrus. I really like this recipe. Thank Harry for me, Bergy!
