There was interest in this recipe, so I will share for all to have.
4 quarts (16 cups) peeled, grated or cut zucchini
1 1/2 C. ReaLemon juice
1 can (46 oz.) unsweetened pineapple juice
3 C. sugar
Remove peeling and seeds from the zucchini and grate if you want to make "crushed" pineapple, or cut into wedges if you want "chunk" pineapple.
Mix all ingredients together and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir frequently.
Pour hot mixture into sterilized, hot jars, leaving 1/2" head space.
Process 30 minutes in a boiling water bath.
Use as a substitute for pineapple in cooking.
I have made chunk faux pineapple before. I liked it in pie and in cooking projects. Didn't like it 'raw' as well. I think I will be making "crushed" pineapple this year with some of the OOPS big zucchini! It will be great this winter for making sweet breads and muffins.
