Making Mock Pineapple using Zucchini.

Making Mock Pineapple using Zucchini.
This is an other good use for your large zucchinis and.the kids really like them.

You will need
large zucchini
Frozen concentrated pineapple juice
1 cup of sugar per can of juice (optional)
Powder sugar or corn starch
Start by peeling and getting the seeds out they should look like this.

Then slice each half into 3 slices.

Then chop into 1 inch chunks they dehydrate way down.

Pour the juice and sugar into a large pan you do not have to have the sugar it does make them a little sweeter.

Cook down until translucence then cook down about another 30 minutes.

Put on your trays and dehydrate at 130 for about 12 to 18 hours depending on the size of your chunks.

As you can see they get a lot smaller. Take off the trays and put into a bag with a little powder sugar to keep them from sticking to each other.
I reused the juice to make another batch, you can store the juice in the fridge until ready to reuse.
