Summer is a sizzling! 

It was way to hot to do anything outside!! 

So I decided to make some homemade jam!!

Pina colada jam!!

I found this recipe in a "Taste of home canning magazine"

It is a very easy recipe. All you need is a few simple ingredients.

6  cups sugar
6 cups shredded peeled zucchini
1 can (8 oz ) crushed pineapple undrained
1/4 cup lime juice
2 packages (3 oz,) pineapple gelatin

In a large cooking pot, combine sugar, zucchini, pineapple and lime juice.  Bring to a boil.  Boil for 10 mins, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat; stir in gelatin until gelatin is dissolved.

Pour into jars or freezer containers, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.  

Let cool completely before covering with lids.  Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 1 year.

Yields 3-1/2 pints
( I filled 9   8 oz. cups)

It was delicious!!
