About Preserves

Before I started using a microwave oven, I thought it was wasteful to buy a whole box of strawberries or blueberries because I could not eat them all by myself. Now I can enjoy a bowl of strawberries and cream or make Blueberry Streusel Cake and turn the leftover fruit into microwave preserves. The reduced amount of sugar in these recipes brings out the taste of the fruit.

  • Blueberry Preserves
  • Peach Preserves
  • Italian Plum Preserves

Applesauce

6-oz. apple

¼ cup water

2 whole cloves

1½ tsp. light brown sugar

Peel and quarter apple and remove core. Cut into ½-inch cubes. Place in 1½-pint Menu-ette.* Add water and cloves. Cover Menu-ette with lid. Cook 6:00 minutes (_____) at 100% power. Remove and discard cloves. Mash mixture with potato masher. Cook 1:00 minute (_____) at 100% power. Add sugar, stir, and serve.

*When doubling recipe, cook in a Gravy Maker Pot to avoid applesauce boiling over.

NOTE: Cooking times are for a 700-watt oven. For best results with this and any other microwave recipe, please be sure to go to the Timing Section of Microwaving Tips for a complete explanation of timing in the microwave.
