Zucchini substitute in home preservation

Asked August 5, 2015, 5:43 PM EDT

Hello, I have made your quick sweet pickle recipe now for a few years and just about everyone loves it made with cucumbers. My question is: "Will it be alright to use zucchini instead of cucumbers for that same recipe?" " Does the process time change if it is?" I know that we are supposed to follow the recipe to the letter(which I always do). Thank you Terry Clawson

You cannot substitute zucchini for cucumbers in a canning recipe.

Unfortunately zucchini has limited canning opportunities.
