Strawberry Juice (pressure cooker)

I feel like a new world opened up when I found out that you could essentially "juice" fruit in your pressure cooker. I am a big fan of fancy cocktails. My bar is full of infusions with herbs and fruit. This is so light and delicate but packed with strawberry flavor. The pectin in the fruit makes this already a little thick, so you can drizzle it right on some homemade yogurt or pancakes. If you want to thicken it up, you can make a quick glaze, which you can find the recipe for here.

The steps are pretty simple, you just need a few gadgets and you'll be rocking in no time. I first put about 1 cup of water into my pot. I put in my steam basket with a wide bowl on top. I found the biggest one I could so that all of the juice from the strawberries we are going to place above will drain down into it and I won't miss any of their sweet nectar. 

Place another steam basket on top of the bowl and put in your fruit in a single layer. You can use strawberries, blueberries, blackberries... most anything. I also made a batch with blueberries which came out great. Make sure your fruit has been washed well and any bad spots cut out. 

Cook on high/manual for 12 minutes + 10 minutes NPR. Store your juice in your refrigerator and add to your favorite drinks and smoothies.
