"Love it!!! I used a fresh lime and included the zest. So happy to find a recipe that uses 6 C of zucchini! I cut the sugar down to 4 C, and we liked it even better than the first time I made it. Perfect with coconut shrimp!"

"The title is a little deceptive, as there is no coconut or coconut flavoring in it at all. Think I will add coconut extract next time. No stars were there to click, so now rating from me this time."

"Made some last fall when I had zucchini in the garden, used a food processor for shredding the zucchini, worked great. I made enough to give, for Christmas gifts. I like the name ot it, I had a receipe, but that was only called Zucchini Jam, so when you give this for gifts, it has a fancy name."

"Was easy to make, Tastes great, my kids love it, and it's great for my son who can't have jam/jelly as he's allergic to pectin. Made it a few times now and will keep this recipe around for years to come :)"

"Pina Colada Jam--with zucchini at its peak season, this recipe is a great way to use the abundance. It freezes well, so you can have a little island paradise any time of year."

"I absolutely love this! Just made it, but we immediately put lids on the jars so they would seal, waiting to see if it sets. I am thinking maybe putting half pectin half jello if it doesn't."
