Zucchini Bread Jam




This recipe was so different I had to try it. I found it on Reddit. Poster said it was a family recipe. 

I cut the recipe in half and also reduced the amount of sugar.
What is sweet to me may not be to you, so experiment. Sugar can always be added but not taken out.

Did not can this.  It's so good that I know it will be gone soon! 

Zucchini Bread Jam

6 cups peeled, seeded and grated zucchini
6 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 pint crushed pineapple, drained
3 tablespoons Low/No Sugar Pectin mixed with 3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Combine zucchini, sugar, lemon juice and drained pineapple. (Add no liquid.) Cook and stir. Bring to a boil and cook an additional 5 minutes. Add pectin/sugar mixture and return to a boil. Start checking gel by dribbling a teaspoon of jam onto a cold plate. Tip the plate sideways--jam will stay together when it is correctly gelled. Stir in vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and nuts(optional)
Pour into jelly jars and process for 10 minutes in boiling water bath.

  1. Boy, this sounds ideal for those who don't can. So many have a lot of zucchini now, and this is one I am going to pass on.

  3. I would love to try this Linda can I replace the sugar with a save substitute sugar. I used to make zuccini bread and share it with my neighbors all the time. They might just like this. I too will share this recipe.

    1. Dottie I don't use sugar substitute at all but I'm sure there must be a way to adapt it

  4. Our zucchini is just about kaput. Bob wants oven fried zucchini with the last few. The yield wasn't as good as it was last year, darn it....and BOY did it get pricey at the grocery store-1.49 a pound? Ouch! We definitely got spoiled with our garden this summer. Hate to see it go.
