This is from the archives, but so worth making. I make it every year. You will love having this on hand during the winter months. It is so hot here, as well as all over the country, I can hardly stand to go out. The zucchini are as big as baseball bats, really. Use the smaller ones for this. I double the recipe and make several batches when I have time. Happy canning!
Do I sound depressed today? Well I am. I might tell you why tomorrow.
