Fruits

Apple FruitsJust like cooking vegetable, fresh or dried fruits are best steamed to preserve the texture and taste as well as vitamins and minerals.  Steaming also retains the nature look of the fruit, essential to your fruit dish.

When steaming vegetable, you need one cup of water (250ml), an ovenproof or steel bowl on a trivet. Normally fruit dish has precise requirement on the texture of the fruit. Instead of leaving the cooker naturally cooling down, you’ll need to use the steam release to release the pressure and stop cooking.

Please note that the cooking time is pressure keeping time on Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker operating at 10.2 – 11.6 psi or 70-80 kPa. Cooking times are approximate. Please use them as a guideline only.
