An Apple a Day Keeps the Baby Away

So we was at the grocery store the other day and couldn’t remember what type of apples my book suggested to use so I wasn’t sure what to buy. I asked the produce worker what he thought would be sweet, taste good to a baby and cook well. He suggested honey sweet apples. I had never heard of them before so he let us try one. Tasted good, so that is what we got. These were not organic so I peeled them before I cooked them. Here is what we did…

2 Honey Sweet Apples (Peeled, cored, and sliced)
Steamed apple slices for 10 minutes
Pureed (No added liquids)

We froze the left overs to use over the next few days. As far as Drew liking or not liking apples, the video explains it all. (Until I can get it to post the video, here is a link)

  1. Hey there- I really like your blog! I have a tip for you though, you really dont have to cook the apples before pureeing them- I found this out last week while making sweet potato apple for my babe- it mashed up better even than after cooking.... just a thought to save you a step! lol

  2. Thank you! I will have to try this next time around, he might like it a little better too!

  3. That was too funny!!! Good idea with the video, it really says it all!
