Apple season is upon us, so now would be a great time to make a big batch of Basic Apple Baby Puree for baby to enjoy well into the winter.
Apples are so versatile and mix well with tons of other fruits, veggies and meats. There have been several different vegetables my daughter refused to eat on their own, but once I mixed some apple puree into it she gobbled it up.
The first batches of apple puree I ever made I removed the skins, as they can be difficult for a baby under 8 months old to digest. However, now that my daughter is older than 8 months, I leave the skins on, as the skins contain many good nutrients. Plus, the steaming process of the Beaba Babycook Pro makes the skins nice and soft and perfect for pureeing. Besides a slight difference in puree color, the Beaba Babycook Pro does such a nice job of pureeing that you can hardly tell the difference between an apple puree that has skins and one that doesn’t.
What’s great is that this Basic Apple Baby Puree isn’t just for babies! We went apple picking a couple of weekends ago and as soon as we got home my kids were requesting applesauce. Thanks to the amazing help of the Beaba Babycook Pro, I was able to whip up a quick batch of fresh applesauce for them in mere minutes. The Beaba Babycook Pro is not just helping me feed baby, it’s helping me feed the whole family!
Combinations To Try With Apples:
- 1 apple (or desired amount) Macintosh, Gala & Braeburn work well for baby food
- Clean, core, and peel apple.
- Dice the apple into chunks and add to the Babycook steaming basket.
- Fill water to level 1. Steam apples in the Babycook. Reserve the cooking liquid just in case you want a different consistency when blending.
- Puree, in the Babycook, to the desired consistency. Add reserved cooking liquid, if necessary.
- Freeze, or store in the refrigerator, in Multiportions container.
