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!!
