Zucchini Candy

So here is another zucchini recipe. I haven’t tried this yet, but I will. I know zucchini takes on what ever flavor you cook it with and this is something fairly new. Supposedly it tastes like gummy bears. Please leave a review if you have ever made this, I really am curious!!

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: about 2-3 jars

Cook Time: 25 min - Dry 14 hrs.  


10 cups peeled diced zucchini into 1/2 inch cubes
3 cups water
2 pkgs. unsweetened Koolaid (any flavor)
2 1/2 cups sugar


Peel and dice zucchini, removing the seeds. Mix the liquid syrup together. Add zucchini. Bring to a boil and them simmer for 25 min; drain. Put on dehydrator trays. Dry 14 hours at 125 degrees. Turn pieces over and dry another 4 hours. This will feel dry and not sticky when done. Store in jars or other tightly sealed containers. If you dip in sugar when you turn them, they will be more like “gum drops” on the outside.

You can do the same thing with the zucchini but use:

48 oz. pineapple juice
2 T. pineapple extract
2 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice

    This recipe is great! It is very much like the fruit chewy things they sell in a box only better for you I’m sure. A great way to use up those “How’d I miss that one?” zucs and yellow squash. Vonnie
