Looking for a way to use up all the Zucchini . This is a very easy recipe and really tasty. My husband even liked and he usually don,t want to taste anything with Zucchini in it.
- 5 cups shredded zucchini (unpeeled)
- 2 oranges, rind and all finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 5 cups sugar
- Mix ingredients and bring to a boil.
- Boil rapidly stirring for 20 minutes.
- Add 1/2 bottle certo and boil again for 1 minute.
- Skim if necessary and pour into jars.
This didn't work out that well for me. The mixture remained quite runny, the color was "off" and the cooking time wasn't near long enough to adequately soften the orange rinds. My solution was adding a box of jello, cooking it longer and will probably only use it over cream cheese as a dip for crackers. I'll be storing it in the freezer since this is an older recipe and doesn't relate how to preserve it properly. Thanks for a great idea, I'll just need to tweak it a bit.
This was my first try at making any kind of preserve. My mixture was quite "liquidy", that's probably my fault (I wasn't as prepared as I should have been) nevertheless, it tasted really good. Also good over ice cream.
Unusual. I couldn't imagine what this would taste like, but it's good. The orange flavor shines through the zucchini. I got 6 half pints. This was very easy to make. I water bath processed them for 13 mins. Thanks DotM.
