A step-by-step guide in making a delicious and nutritious food for your baby.
Apples are the most used baby food. They are great alone, mixed with baby cereal and mixed with those “less favorite” foods.
If you have an apple peeler/corer this is the easiest way to go. If not, peel and core your apple and cut it into slices/chunks.
Place the apples in a pot and fill with water just shy of covering the apples.
Cover with a lid and boil the apples until they are tender. I cook mine untill they are fairly soft so they puree easily. Make sure to stir and check the water level while they are cooking.
Using a slotted spoon scoop the apples from the water and place in a blender or food processor. Some of the water will make its way with the apples and this will help in the puree process. Reserve the remaining water in case you need more for a better puree.
Let the mixture cool slightly, then pour the apples into clean ice cube trays. If you do not have a spout on your blender or food processor: Let the mixture cool then pour it into a ziploc bag, seal it, then cut one of the corners off and dispense the baby food into the tray.
My baby loves a tiny pinch of cinnamon mixed with her apples. I take a little taste every now and then because it really is so yummy.
