Reduce a puree or sauce in the microwave?
Dear All -
I am trying to think of a way to reduce a watermelon puree in the microwave because it is so hot that I can't bear to turn on the stove. I want to make some watermelon pops. Watermelon puree is so dilute that I'd prefer to reduce it a little before I add yogurt and mix in some blackberries and pour it into the pop molds.
My best thought so far is to heat it in a pyrex microwave bowl with a steam-hole in the lid, and open the microwave and let the accumulated steam escape periodically. I bet that would take a while though.
Do you think that would work? Is there a better strategy?
