    UnknownChef86's Note:

    I haven't grown any zucchini since I got this recipe, but have been dying to find out how well this works...I would think this would best done with those huge, monster zucchinis that seem to sprout up when your back is turned...Zucchinizilla, if you will. If anyone is game to try this, please let me know how it turned out. Cooking time is process time for canner after it has attained 10 pounds pressure. Yield is an estimate.

      Try grating the zucchini instead of chopping and add pineapple extract.

      I had put in a rating on this earlier, that it tasted gross. It didn't show up though! I think that it might be a little different if you can find concentrate, because I used pineapple juice out of a tin can, and that juice usually tastes bad anyways.

      This recipe is great for using your bumper zucchini harvest! I peel and seed my biggest zucchinis (you know, the ones that look like baseball bats!) and then cube into about the size of pineapple chunks. I also add pineapple extract sometimes (if I have it). Makes great pineapple upside down cake too! Tastes just like pineapple!
