I cut my giganitc zucchini into tid-bit size pieces after peeling and removing the seeds and surrounding membrane. The 18 cups of pieces made 7 pints, with about 2-1/2 cups of "juice" left over. If I made this again, I'd probably use 20 cups of tidbits. It tastes like pineapple, but has more of a pear consistency. It will definitely get used in the place of, stir fries, etc.

Very easy recipe. It tastes like mild pineapple. I made a half recipe. Instead of grinding the zucchini, I cut it into pineapple tidbit shapes. And it looks just like pineapple tidbits! I also made one jar of pineapple rings. These tasted slightly of mango - maybe because the ring shape was thicker. The next day, I made a delicious "pineapple" coffee cake. *** Made ten 1/2 pints and water-bathed the jars for 10 mins. Great recipe.
