If you love fresh fruit, then candy it up by making homemade tanghulu in the microwave.
1 pound fresh fruit or berries
1 cup granulated white sugar
½ cup water
Turn your fresh fruit into a delicate crystalline treat!
Thread fruit onto bamboo skewers
Mix 1 cup sugar and ½ cup water
Stir with a spoon to mix thoroughly
Microwave the mixture on high for 3 minutes to 300°F
Quickly dip your fruit skewers into the hot sugar
Work fast because sugar hardens in 2 minutes!
Place the coated skewers onto wax paper to cool
Tanghulu should be cool enough to eat in 2-3 minutes
Tanghulu is one of the most elegant looking desserts
