Microwave raspberry jam











Sometimes I make some microwave recipes and  I posted them  but never  have made jam in microwave. Many people do not like the microwave, but I think everything can be used in proper place, is what I think sometimes when I had to cook several meals microwave help so much.

This jam was great and for that posted,  I do not have much faith :) but it was great  and  can use raspberries, blueberry or strawberries. (I made jams always but with the old method)

The microwave is much to respect the times (I was on  a course in microwave for a while) and many of you will  be in berries season soon, anyway you can use too frozen berries.

 
Ingredients
 
450 g of raspberries
or strawberries
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
450g of sugar
 
 
 Method
 
 
In a microwave safe bowl (capacity of about 3 liters), put the raspberries (the container must be large since the mixture can rise while cooking)
Sprinkle with lemon juice raspberries.
Cook in microwave for 5 minutes.

Remove from the microwave, add sugar and stir well so that the sugar remains dissolved.
Cook in the microwave for 15 minutes on high power.
Remove and stir.
Back to put  other 15 minutes on high power again.
Remove and stir and then again 15 minutes.
Total: 45 minutes
Remove, stir and see the consistency. Wait a bit, if you want more thicker about 10 minutes.But remember when the jam is cool will be more thick.
Remove and let cool slightly.
Place  in clean jars and allow to dry without the lid, I put a kitchen tablecloth and the next day I close them.
Enjoy!

Mermelada de frambuesas en microondas











No son muchas cosas las que hago en microondas pero como todo en la vida el equilibrio es importante (hay gente que no quiere nada con el microondas)
Yo hago algunas cosas y quedan estupendas, sobre todo me ayuda cuando tengo que cocinar varias cosas al mismo tiempo.
Cunado vi esta receta de la mermelada me dio la curiosidad sobre todo que normalmente hago mermeladas con el método tradicional.
Es estupendo cuando se quiere hacer cantidades pequeñas (salieron 3 frascos) , es bastante rápido, mientras se iba haciendo yo hice otras cosas.
Hace unos años hice un curso de microondas muy bueno y aprendí mucho, una de las cosas que el microondas es mucho de respetar los tiempos.

Ingredientes

 450 gramos de frambuesas (se pueden ocupar congeladas)
pueden ser frutillas tambien
450 gramos de azúcar
1 cucharada de jugo de limón
3 frascos medianos (limpios y secos)

Preparación

En un bol grande apto para microondas (de unos 3 litros de capacidad) colocar las frambuesas con el jugo de limon (si son congeladas descongelar antes unos minutos) revolver y poner al microondas por 5 minutos.

Retirar  revolver y agregar el azúcar, revolver bien.
Cocinar primero por 15 minutos en potencia alta.
Retirar y revolver.
Colocar de nuevo por 15 minutos en potencia alta.
Retirar y revolver.
Nuevamente colocar por 15 minutos más y despues dejar reposar un poco.
La textura cuando se enfría queda espesa, si encuentran que le falta colicarla  unos 10 minutos más.
Recordar que cuando se enfria se va espesando por eso ver como está primero.
Dejar enfria un poco y colocar en frascos dejar todo un dia tapados con un paño de cocina y al otro día poner las tapas.

  30. Good Morning Gloria, Oh no, I do not have a microwave. I had one for years and all I ever made was jacket potatoes, so I gave it away to a friend who wanted one.
    I will keep this recipe though, because you never know, I might buy one in the future.
    This microwave jam looks so much more straightforward to make than the conventional method.
    Enjoy your day.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne
