Zucchini, Pineapple, Ginger Jam

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Rita1652

With all my zucchinis in the garden after make my habanaro jam I did some research and came up with this one.Try this on a grilled tuna steak, grilled chicken, toss some into a salad dressing or spread on some cream cheese.... You can peel and add yellow food coloring for eye appeal. I myself like the nutrition of the skin.

I made this recipe. Next time I would definately add more ginger and omit the jello. The jam tasted great until I put in the jello which upped the sweetness to a whole new level and made it way too sweet. I had to add some lemon juice to try and balance things out. I also used Balls powder pectin as its all our local grocery store had available. I'm more comfortable with using powder pectin anyway...never had a bad experience with it. Have heard stories about the liquid pectin not jelling properly. Something to keep in mind...
