Reviews for Pina Colada Jam
"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!"
"Loved this and it is so easy! This one is a keeper just like it is. Thanks for sharing!"
"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."
"easy and beautiful--makes a lovely gift. But way too sweet. Is there anything that can be done to temper that?"
"I used one pectin and one gelatin. Set up great. We love this with coconut shrimp!"
"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."
"Great recipe. Just wondering if it can be canned in a hot water bath and shelved or only as freezer jam or refrigerated as the recipe states????"
"Oh - so overly sugary, are you sure it needs 2 pkg of jello, found sugar crystals on top of jar. Have been canning 47 yrs and inticed by ingredients ( anything using zuccini, is an eyecatcher). Guess I was looking for a more tropical taste - jello overwhelming. Maybe if it came sugar free, that usually has more fruit taste to it."
"Amazing! Loved the recipe from beginning to end"
"Absolutely delicious! easy to make...came out just perfect. Will make nice gifts to give to friends."
"Haven't yet yet but am curious why it isn't called Pina Jam as there is no cocnut to warrant the Colada???? I am making it this afternoon-thought perhaps there was a mistake???????"
"This was easy to make and quite flavorful. Could not get pineapple jello at the store I usally shop at, but did not have to go to far to find it. Produces a brillant color!"
