Can I bake apples in the microwave
We always have apples, they are familiar to us, one might say, ordinary. But sometimes it bothers to gnaw them fresh, I want diversity. And another plus, with a huge, baked apples is that they do not cause bloating as fresh. So they can be kiddies, even babies, their nursing mothers, and all those to whom apples are prohibited, for example, after abdominal surgery.
Do not believe those who convince you of the lack of vitamins and nutrients in baked apples. Everything is preserved, even some substances enhance their healing effect. And there is a lot of fiber in them, so a very useful diet product that can restore your digestion.
How to prepare apples for baking
- Apples can be baked whole, stuffed with halves or something. But in the beginning they need to be washed. Imported fruits often go in paraffin treatment, it is quite difficult to remove from the surface of the peel, you need to wash it with a non-coarse brush in hot water. I just wash my homemade apples with soda.
- You do not need to remove the rind from the fruit before baking, otherwise they will fall apart and lose their shape. But so that it does not crack, it makes sense to make a few punctures with a wooden toothpick.
- To prepare apples for stuffing, you need to cut off the upper part, it will be a lid. In a circle with a sharp knife cut out the core with bones and pull it out. The bottom is left untouched. Also, in order for the apples to bake evenly, pick approximately the same size of the fruit.
- If you bake apples with slices or halves, it is enough to cut them and remove the middle part. But do not cut too thin slices, again, they will fall apart.
