I need a recipe for canning zucchini made with pineapple juice. Any one out there have one and know if it is any good? It's that time of year the zucchinis are coming in full and fast. Thanks so much to you all out there in cyber space.

Be sure to get a recipe from the County extension office or somewhere safe. I did up a huge supply a long time ago and had to throw it all away. Seems there is an old recipe that has pineapple juice but not enough acid in it. There are newer ones out now but why take a chance?
-Zucchini Jam Jelly and Preserves Recipes
6 cups zucchini; peeled & grated
1/4 cup water
1 package sure-jell
5 cups sugar
13 ounces pineapple; crushed
6 ounces apricot Jello
Boil the zucchini and water until soft. Add Sure-Jell and bring to a hard boil. Add sugar and pineapple. Boil 5 minutes. Remove form heat. Add apricot Jello. Stir well. Pack in sterilized jars and seal. I use the Sure-Jell Light and use only 3 1/2 cups sugar.
This is an orange colored jam and really tastes great, unless you don't like apricots or pineapple!
