I’m still perplexed by what to do with all that zucchini. So, I thought I’d try Zucchini Jam. Part savory spread part pickle. You know, if you like pickles, this is the jam for you.
I’m going to experiment with it a little more, but like I said, if you are a fan of pickles, this rocks!

Zucchini Jam Recipe
- 1 & 1/2 cups shredded zucchini I took about 1/2 cup and chopped it into thin strips to give different textures
- 1 Anaheim Chili chopped into thin strips
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 package pectin
- Place a large pot over medium heat and combine zucchini, pepper, sugar, and vinegar. Boil until thermometer reaches 220 degrees. Take off heat and stir in pectin. Allow to cool for 2 minutes and stir jam for 1 minute. Place jam into containers and store in the refrigerator.
- Serve over crackers and cream cheese. Eat 'em up, yum! 😉

I was wondering if you could include instructions for canning this jam in jars. I would love to try it but need to ship it un-refridgerated, and I would like it to keep for a while.
I don’t actually can my stuff to keep it on the shelf. I usually just package for consumption within a few weeks. Let me do some research and I’ll let you know.
Here’s a good link with lots of info on canning. This should work well. http://www.canning-food-recipes.com/canning.htm
Very unique! I love zucchini and I love pickles, so this is something I would like to try!
I have to try this soon! It looks delicious….
This sounds awesome! I can’t wait for the zucchini to start producing so I can make some. Thanks for sharing.
