About This Recipe

“I haven’t grown any zucchini since I got this recipe, but have been dying to find out how well this works…I would think this would best done with those huge, monster zucchinis that seem to sprout up when your back is turned…Zucchinizilla, if you will. If anyone is game to try this, please let me know how it turned out. Cooking time is process time for canner after it has attained 10 pounds pressure. Yield is an estimate.”
