Different fruit can be cooked in various ways depending on how you want to use them. Peaches or nectarines make a delicious dessert by grilling them or cooking them in a sauté pan on the stove. Blueberries or raspberries can be cooked in a small amount of water in a saucepan on the stove to make a sauce. Dried fruits can be cooked in water – use approximately equal amounts of water and dried fruit, or see directions on the package. There are many cookbooks on the market that can help you cook the particular fruit you would like to prepare.
