Zucchini Marmalade

Yield: Makes 6 pints.

This Zucchini Marmalade, with a slight hint of lemon and ginger, will disappear when served with warm scones.


  • 2 pounds zucchini, washed and grated
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 can (13 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • melted paraffin, to seal jars


Put zucchini into a large kettle and add lemon peel, lemon juice, and pineapple. Bring ingredients to a boil over high heat. Lower heat and continue to simmer, uncovered, until zucchini is tender. Add pectin. Bring to a boil again, and stir in the sugar and ginger. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Stir for 5 minutes to prevent zucchini from floating. Ladle into sterilized jelly jars, and seal with 1/4 inch of paraffin.
