STEAMED APPLES AND RHUBARB
1 pound fresh rhubarb, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 pound Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp grated orange zest
1/2 tsp ground dried ginger
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
In a 2-quart microwave-safe casserole, combine rhubarb and apples.
In a separate bowl, combine and mix well the sugar, zest, ginger
Sprinkle over rhubarb and apples. Toss well to coat them evenly.
Cover with plastic wrap (leave a small vent on 1 side so that steam
can escape). Microwave on HIGH for 9 to 12 minutes, until rhubarb
and apples are tender. Rotate the dish 1/4 turn every 4 minutes.
Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
