Compressed fruit without the vacuum?

kkdcalgary | Jul 20, 201711:08 AM

Dear Chowhounders;

I was wondering if anyone has tried to make compressed fruit without a vacuum? I read the idea is that you squeeze the from between the cells of a piece of fruit and it seems it should work with two dishes stacked with the fruit pressed between. I'm trying with some strawberries right now, we'll see what we get! I have two plates with strawberries between and a jug of water on top. I also added a bit of sugar to macerate it compressing does nothing ;)

thanks for comments!
