Homemade Baby Food
Fruit Baby Food
This works well for apples, peaches, pears, plums, and apricots.
Wash the fruit well. Remove skins, and steam the fruit for 15-20 minutes. Cool. Remove any seeds or pits. Blend or puree until smooth. Refrigerate what you'll use within a day, and freeze the rest in ice cube trays for easy baby-sized portions.
Baked Sweet Potato & Apples
3/4 cups cooked sweet potato
1 cup applesauce or apples
1/4 cup liquid (milk, formula, or cooking water)
Preheat the oven to 350-degrees. Peel, core, and slice the apples. Mix sweet potatoes and apples in a buttered baking dish. Pour liquid over. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Puree or mash with a fork. Freeze whatever you won't use within a day.
