I just put the liquid, etc. from the macerated apples in the microwave for 6 minutes to reduce as Rose wrote in the recipe. When I make the peach pie, I’ve reduced the liquid on the stove, so I thought I’d try the microwave instead. Well, the liquid now smells a little funny. Do you think I burned the liquid? I’m afraid to pour it over the apples. If you think I did burn it, what other liquid can I substitute?
Please respond soon if you can. I’m in the middle of making this pie! OY!
