Finding myself with an overage of both zucchini AND lemons, this recipe comes to the rescue. Can't wait to taste the results! Edited to add: WOW!!! Worth the cost of the butter and sugar NO DOUBT! I put some in gift-giving sized jars and bigger jars for us to keep. Beautiful color (I took the advice and peeled them but wouldn't if I was making lime flavored) and wonderful taste! Thanks
I literally just stepped out of the kitchen from making this. I am in LOVE already! I canned the 3 half pints and had about 1/3 cup leftover to eat NOW. lol It's fabulous! I will be making more to give as gifts. I can easily see using it as part of a cookie or lemon bar recipe!
This is great! I did it with orange but am making more one batch with lemon and another with lime. Thanks for sharing this one. I enjoy it on buttered toast, and plan to mix with cream cheese to put on nut breads durring the festive season. thanks so much, way easier then making lemon curd.
I just made this but didn't have any lemons, so I used limes. Very yummy!

I Love lemon curd, and this was to odd for me not to try. You'd never be able to guess there was zucchini involved in this recipe, and it helped me use up 2 gigantic ones (used about 6 cups cubed) However after stirring and simmering for about 45 minutes mine never really got thick like I expected. It did thicken a bit after canning/cooling. I tried it in a simple recipe today that requires lemon curd and it worked perfectly. I'll be keeping this one around! Someone mentioned the "texture" seemed "off" to them. I agree (can't put my finger on it though) In recipes however, or mixed with yogurt you can't tell at all!
So easy to do and yes, there goes another zucchini. I made mine with lemons and no one could tell the difference from a regular lemon curd I use. I canned some in small jars to give away (if I can) and some in regular jelly jars. Very pretty. I did peel my zucchini and nuked it in the microwave before processing it in the food processor. Thanks for sharing.
Isn't it amazing what can be done with a zucchini. This is really good! I made mine using lemons and the taste is amazing. I may try with the other citrus fruits, given the opportunity. I do have a little trouble with the texture, but that's just me. Thanks!
I made this first with lemon. Then did orange. WE LOVE IT! I even canned some to put in my pantry for after zucchini season. Thank you! Superb, smooth, great flavor!
wonderful!!! some of my friends don't even like zucchini but they loved this!!!
