If you are like me you look for anyway to use your zucchini. This recipe came from the Cooking in the Valley (1874-1999) 125th Anniversary Cookbook of Ebenezer Lutheran Church.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the zucchini and sugar for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Stir continuously so the mixture does not burn.
  3. Add lemon juice and pineapple and boil 6 minutes together with the boiled zucchini mixture.
  4. Remove from heat and add 2 packages apricot jello.
  5. Cover with paraffin wax and then cover with jar cover and seal.
  6. I just cover the jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator.

What a great idea and recipe. Sometimes we are so over run with zucchini and we get tired of eating it. This is just what I needed

I love it. Just made it today. I could not find apricot Jell-O so I used peach. This is a keeper.
