                               MICROWAVE HINTS

  • Lumpy brown or white sugar:  Heat in microwave with a cup of boiling water. 
  • Cream cheese:  Remove foil; heat 8-ounce package 2 minutes on LOW.
  • Butter or Margarine:  Remove foil; heat 1 stick for 1 minutes on LOW.
  • Raisins in hot water:  Heat 2 to 3 minutes on HIGH: let stand 2 minutes.
  • Acorn squash:  Cook 1½ minutes on HIGH to cut in half easier.
  • Citrus fruit:  Heat 15 to 20 seconds before squeezing to get more juice.
  • Honey that has sugared.
  • Almond bark:  Heat 1 pound for 2 minutes on MEDIUM; stir, then cook 30 to 60 seconds more, stirring.
  • Chocolate:  Heat 1-ounce square for 2 to 3 minutes on LOW.
  • Whipped topping, small carton:  Heat 1 minute on LOW.  (Center should still be slightly firm but will blend in.)  Don't overheat!
  • Frozen orange juice:  Remove top metal lid; heat 6-ounce can 30 seconds; 12-ounce can 45 seconds on HIGH.
  • To toast coconut:  Spread ½ cup in pie plate; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds after 2 minutes.  Watch closely, as it browns quickly once it starts turning brown.
  • One cup herbs on a paper towel will dry in about 4 minutes.  Crush and store in airtight container.
  • When warming rolls, place a cup of water in a corner of the microwave.
  • Scald milk 2 minutes per cup, stirring once each minute.
  • Heat water directly in teapot for tea.
  • Don't use recycled paper products in microwave; they might ignite.
  • Use a round dish instead of a square one to assure even cooking.
  • Cook meat loaf in a ring.  Place custard cup upside down in center and grease will come up into glass.
  • Bake potatoes quicker in a ring mold, covered.
  • T.V. dinners can be heated in microwave by popping out frozen portions and heating them separately.
  • To thaw ½ package frozen vegetables, wrap foil on portion not to be thawed.  Heat, removing thawed portion.
  • To shorten cooking time for soups, precook vegetables in microwave.
  • Do not salt meats and vegetables on the surface before cooking.
  • When baking cakes, fill only half full; place a juice glass in center of baking dish to prevent soggy middle; place cake dish on another dish or rack for bottom of cake to bake quicker.  Square cakes need foil on corners; remove during final baking.
  • For raising bread dough:  Put dough in proper container, cover with plastic wrap and damp cloth.  Heat on lowest power for 2 to 3 minutes.  May repeat.  Leave bread in microwave to rise.
