Well, it seems summer is getting close to the end. School is back in session and the State Fair is going on. Our weather seems to have helped the crops this year as well as our gardens. Those zucchini just keep coming. I always enjoy canning and freezing.

Here are a couple of recipes for using that zucchini:

Pina Colada Jam

6 c. sugar

6 c. shredded zucchini

1 8oz. can crushed pineapple,undrained

1/4 c. lime juice

2 3oz. pkg. pineapple gelatin

1 tsp. rum extract

combine sugar, zucchini, pineapple and lime juice in dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Boil for 10 min. stirring constantly. remove from the heat; stir in gelatin and extract until gelatin is dissolved. Pour into jars or freezer containers. Cool completely before covering. refrigerate for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 1 year.

My family really enjoyed this.
