Zucchini Butter and more

I am so glad it isn't so hot anymore! It's sad when you think 88 feels good! :-) Hoping tomorrow will be a good day, too, since I work for Nancy. At least it's enjoyable to work for her. She spoils me. ;-)
I'm hoping to run across someone sick of zucchini! I made zucchini butter and it is soooo good! You would never know it isn't apple butter.

Zucchini Butter

4 cups cooked and blended zucchini (peel & remove seeds)

4 Tbsp vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)

1 tsp lemon juice

2 cups sugar (I use brown sugar)

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp allspice (I couldn't find allspice, I really thought I had some, soooo I used pumpkin pie spice lol)

Boil zucchini til tender,

drain and then puree in blender.
Mix in the rest of the ingredients & put in crock pot or oven. (If crock pot, on low. Neither recipe told me what to put the oven on)

Cook til desired thickness.

I cooked it all night. It is delicious! My hubby and momma both loved it!

Put into jars and then hot bath to seal.
