Zucchini Marmalade

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


2 pounds zucchini, washed and
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 can (13 ounces) crushed pineapple,
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.
