canning zuccinni rampni

yorktownpattyJanuary 26, 2013

Hello,

I have been reading the Harvest forum for awhile, with particular interest in canning. I have a large batch of zucchini rampini (heirloom Italian zucchini, in the winter form.)It needs to move out of the guest bathroom bathtub very soon. I have looked at the National Center for Food Preparation and at the directions for pressure canning pumpkin and winter squash. If I cube the squash, does the particular type of winter squash matter? Thanks for the help.

No it makes no difference which winter squash you use. The guidelines apply to all WS varieties.

Thanks for the quick and positive answer. Now all I have to do is decide if this is a wise choice or just make a lot of soup.

Can it in chunks and then make soup out of it later at needed.

Well I ran a trial load of squash chunks in the pressure canner. I thought I had enough to fill 7 quart jars, but some of the pieces would have been too small, so I did 5 quarts. Next time I will cut up more squash. In any event it was a lot of work and I think I will see how long the squash will last in the bathtub or freeze it. 90 minutes of babysitting the pressure canner is a long time. Thanks for the help.
