Personal Notes:
Mom and I made a lot of jam in the 1970's using this recipe! You can use any flavor of Jell-o and the zucchini soaks up the flavor. The pineapple gives it texture. Our favorite Jell-o flavor to use was peach or apricot, but any kind of berry or orange Jell-o works well. Tip: grape Jell-o did not work out well.
