Japanese dried fruit is traditionally eaten with a spoon and a fork, but it’s also easy to prepare at home with a few simple ingredients.1.
Pick up a jar of dried fruit and mix it with 1 cup of water.
Put the fruit in a jar, add 1/2 cup of sugar and salt, and seal the lid.2.
Place the jar in the refrigerator overnight to thaw.3.
Once it’s fully thawed, pour 1 cup hot water into the jar, stirring well and letting the water drip out into the bowl of the microwave.4.
Microwave the jar for about 10 minutes.
The jar should thicken and begin to crackle with bubbles.5.
Put a piece of paper towel or a towel pad over the jar and microwave for about 3 minutes.
You can also put the jar on the countertop, microwave it, and microwave it for an additional 3 minutes or until it thins.6.
While the jar is still warm, remove the lid and mix the remaining 1 cup sugar, salt, vanilla, and fresh fruit into the boiling water.7.
Drain the water off of the jar with a paper towel and pour into a bowl.
Add the jar to a bowl with the other ingredients.8.
Micowave for an extra minute or two to thicken the mixture, and stir it gently while it cools.9.
Add 1/4 cup of ice water to the mixture to thick it up.
Micronutrients like calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium are present in the fruit.10.
Heat the microwave to high for about 15 to 20 seconds to make the fruit melt and melt the ice.
If you like, you can also heat the microwave for an even longer time, but this can cause the fruit to harden, so take that into account when you add more ice.11.
Remove the lid from the jar.
Mix the remaining ingredients together, then pour into the ice cream maker.
It should look like this:
