Tangy Zucchini Marmalade

"Everyone has too much zucchini in the summer. Here is another way to use it. A good friend gave this recipe to me along with some zucchini and it was yummy. It has no pectin in it, but uses jello."

  1. Can I can this in a water bath? If so how long for pint jars?


  1. Very enjoyable, rich taste. It tightens up within 24 hrs. Very nice cake filling.
  2. This is a great recipe! I used it last year when my zucchini plants just wouldn't stop producing, and gave away some of the jars of marmalade to my friends and relatives. They can't wait for this year's batch! Thanks so much for sharing such a fantastic recipe.
