Little Pots of Goodness Pt 2 Tutorial

Little Pots of Goodness is something I blogged about here a while ago.  Since then, my mum has clued me into a wonderful little secret she recently learned…

You can cook stuff in jars WITH LIDS ON in the microwave!!!

It may not seem like much to you, but I always forget to get Reggie’s vegies (hehe), out of the freezer and then he’s hungry and I haven’t any food ready to go.

All I did was cook my fruit (apples, pears and apricots), with a pinch of cinnamon until soft, then blitzed with my trusty stick blender (I love, love, love my Kmix).  Whilst still hot, bottle in sterilised jars and put the lids on tight, then pop them into the microwave (I do 3 jars at a time) for 1 – 2 minutes.  You MUST watch, as soon as you see them boiling – STOP.  Or you will end up with goop everywhere – I know this from experience.

And it really is as simple as that.  I’ve done this 3 times now and the fruit is as lovely 3 weeks later as the day I popped it into jars.  Just to see, I have put a jar aside that I did 4 weeks ago, gonna give it 12 weeks and then open it – I am quietly confident all will be well.

I love these photos...

Yep.  Good to go.  Little Pots of Goodness, right there on my pantry shelf, no fridge, no freezer, just old fashioned jars full of sunshine.
