This zucchini gummy candy recipe without jello or pectin tastes like commercial gummy treats with no artificial flavors, colors or refined sugar.


Units Scale
  • 8 cups zucchini or summer squash, peeled, seeded and cut into roughly 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 can fruit juice concentrate (11.5 ounce)
  • 1 can water


  1. Place cubed zucchini in a large, nonreactive stockpot. Pour in juice concentrate and water.
  2. Cook gently until translucent and tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Drain in a colander, spread out on dehydrator sheets so the pieces are not touching.
  4. Dehydrate at 135F for 8-12 hours or until tacky but no longer moist. I usually do mine overnight.
  5. Enjoy right away or pack for snacking. For longer storage, place in a sealed container in the refrigerator and eat within one month. Makes around 2 cups.


This is a good use for overgrown garden zucchini – just cut around the seed cavity.
