Quick Microwaved "Simmered" Apples

Quick Microwaved "Simmered" Apples

A very easy dish and you only need 2 ingredients. It is a macrobiotic recipe that I recommend as baby or toddler food. It is so good that you will want to be careful not to eat it all while tasting it!

Ingredients: Easy to cook amount

2 tablespoons


1. Cut the apple into 5 mm wedges.
2. Place the apple and raisins in a microwave safe container and microwave at 600 W for 1-1.5 minutes.
3. Cook until the apple is soft, moist and translucent. Continue cooking in residual heat until transparent. If it is not quite transparent, mix it and microwave it again.
4. When the apple cools down, chill in a refrigerator until cold. Room temperature is OK in winter.
5. It gets sweeter by chilling it. Drain the liquid and use it in sweets or bread. Add some sugar If you prefer to eat it while it is still warm.
6. This is our family's favorite sandwich. Everyone seems to get excited when I serve it.
7. You can also sandwich these simmered apples in butter rolls.
