To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Deep Dish


  • 2 cups (225g) fresh strawberries, diced or sliced 
  • ½ cup (100g) sugar
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Add the fruit, sugar, and lemon into the Anyday dish and mix well. Allow the fruit to macerate for 5-10 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved into a thick, syrup-like consistency. 
  2. Cook uncovered at Power Level 6tooltip for 22-23 minutes or until the fruit has softened and the syrup coats the back of a rubber spatula. Note that the jam will look loose at this point and it will thicken as it cools. The cooking time will also depend on the ripeness of the fruit or if you are using frozen berries. 
  3. Allow the jam to fully cool before using. Jam can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • This recipe is very versatile! You can use any in-season berry such as blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries— fresh or frozen. Follow the same fruit-to-sugar ratio and keep in mind that the total cook time might change, depending on the size and freshness of the berries.
  • Looking to make a sweet and spicy spread to pair with cheese? Add a pinch of chili flakes to the ingredients and cook as directed
  • Use the jam in yogurt parfaits, cake or ice cream filling, cocktails, and any other application to your liking.

Recipe notes

  • If using frozen strawberries, you may need to add up to 10 more minutes of cooking time so make sure to keep an eye for visual cues.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
