Zucchini Jam
« on: December 17, 2012, 05:59:21 am »
I have an abundance of zucchini and tend to every year.  I have become very creative with them, this zucchini jam is used with ham. I am going to make a batch of mini zucchini scones  http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/3547/zucchini+and+cheddar+scones top with sliced Leg ham and a dob of Zucchini jam

Ingredients
1.4kg large zucchini/marrow roughly cut
1.4kg sugar (original recipe called for 1.8kg)
25g ginger, grated
rind and juice of 2 lemons, thinly peeled
rind and juice of 1 oranges, thinly peeled

Method
1. Place the zucchini in TM blitz for a few second until chopped, place in a large bowl and sprinkle over about 450g of the sugar. Leave overnight.

2. Place the  ginger, lemon and orange rind into TM blitz until fine then put into a piece of muslin. Place the muslin bag zucchini, orange and lemon juices in TM add the remaining sugar

3.  Speed  2, reverse,100 degrees  cook 20 minutes, then I increased temperature to varoma for another 40 mins until setting point was reached and the zucchini looked transparent.

4. Remove and discard the muslin bag. Pot the hot jam into clean, warm, sterilised jars, cover with waxed paper discs, set aside to cool and cover in the usual

Unusual, hum BB I would be frightened the Muslin bag might break, did you give it a try with the ingredients just included?  I do have zucchini's growing if I get a few to many I might give it a try.

Haven't tried it yet.  Waiting for the zucchinis to get their act together.. not too sure why they're not producing more atm . . . .When I do get to make it, I'll let you know how it turns out . . . :D

Or maybe those, like berringamababe, might be in a better position with their crops to recommend something they've tried . . . . :D

I kept checking to see if the bag broke expecting it to,but it didn't

I usually make a relish but wanted something different.  Used peeled deseeded and diced zucchini instead of apple or pear in fruit mince also today.
