We are getting lots of cucumbers in our garden, and we already have lots of pickles. So, I thought, cucumbers have a flavor that goes well with other flavors. Why not make a jam/marmalade?
2 cups cucumbers (peeled, seeds removed, and shredded)
zest of 4 limes
juice of 4 limes
4 cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup powdered pectin (1 box)
option 1 – handful of finely chopped fresh basil leaves
option 2 – handful of finely chopped mint leaves
option 3 – two jalapeno peppers finally chopped
add all the ingredients in a sauce pan, and stir will bring to a boil. Boil for 20 minutes, being careful not to let it boil over.
add to sterilized jars, and put lids on them. Place in water-bath and boil for 8 minutes. Remove jars and let them seal.
