TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: It’s close: Use zucchini for Mock Apple Butter

Jim Hunter has given me so many of his wife’s recipes. With zucchini being so plentiful this time of year, I thought I’d share one of them. Jim found a scrapbook where she had collected recipes. She has written whether they are good, Jim’s favorite, or a “no-no.”

I had so much fun going through the book. I even found some obits. One was Gene’s cousin. Mary wrote in this and another one: “Looks good and tastes so real, you’ll want to share this.” Thanks, Jim and Mary.

Mock Apple Butter

4 cups zucchini puree

4 tablespoons vinegar

1 teaspoon lemon juice

2 cups sugar

Dash of allspice

2 drops red food coloring

1 teaspoon cinnamon

• Peel and seed zucchini and chop coarsely.

• Put into blender with vinegar and blend until smooth.

• Pour into saucepan with remaining ingredients and cook stirring constantly, until mixture reaches desired thickness.

• Cool and keep in refrigerator.
