"This is a great recipe! I have made several different ways. With lemon jello and lemon zest added. I decreased the sugar to 5 cups because of the jello; I added a little clear jel to the recipe. I canned the end product in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. This recipe is a hit."

"The family LOVED this recipe! Question though, my father-in-law in diabetic and this just has too much sugar in it for him. Anyone know of an alternative I could try?"

"I decided to use 4 Cups of zucchini and 2 cups of fresh fruit. I used 1 cup blk raspberries and 1 cup apricots, and raspberry jello. I combined the sugar which I lowered to 4 Cups and the jello. I then made the jam like regular low sugar jam. Placed a pkg of pectin in the zucchini, pineapple, fruit mixture. Brought it to boil that wouldn't stir down for 1 minute, then added the jello and sugar mixture and brought it back to the hard boil for 1 minute. Turned out amazingly wonderful. Thanks for this great recipe I was able to adapt to what's on hand."

"Delicious! I forgot to peel the zucchini, but turned out well. This was my first jelly, so I halved the recipe to test it. It is very sweet; I'm going to make again and try other gelatin flavors."

"Would l love to know know why is it that every variation of this recipe that I find it has a 6 oz pkg of Jello. All I can every find in the groceries stores is a .30 or a .60 oz. Am I missing something here?

Untill it cools, I won't know if I like it or not. I'm just hoping it thickens up."
