Helpful hints

  • Small microwave ovens require 6 minutes to cook a medium apple. Cooking times vary depending on the size of the apples and the microwave. Apple is done when it is easy to cut.
  • Avoid covering food with plastic wrap during microwaving due to possible contamination of food with toxins from the plastic.
  • Reduce portion to 1/2 apple for a lower carbohydrate dessert.
