Not a review but a question: I am new to jelly/jam making. Does this have to be refrigerated? Say I wanted to sell it on a shelf in my retail store. Can I do that or does it have to stay refrigerated?

I made this with my overload of zucchini and it was so delicious! You would never know the zucchini was in there. I did cut back a little on the sugar.

I left out the sugar and lemon juice. This is a delicious condiment! Thank you, Ruth, for sharing this recipe.

Tried this recipe this year (2014) for the first time. I used both zucchini and yellow squash and canned using the water bath method as well. The mixture takes about 24 hours to completely jell to a jam consistency but my family does Love the taste! I will definitely be making more as soon as we have more zucchini and yellow squash ripen! Some of this will definitely go into our Christmas Gift Baskets!

I made this jam with some zucchini from my garden. It is delicious. I canned the jelly using the water bath method. That way I could take advantage of the abundant zucchini and can share the jam for gifts.
