Friday's Easy Baby Food Recipe

....if you can even call it a recipe at all.  It's so easy, a caveman could do it.

I got it from The Baby Food Bible by Eileen Behan.

Apple and Pear Puree

1 apple, peeled, cored, and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
1 pear, peeled, cored, and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
1 tablespoon water (or juice, but I used water, because Isaac isn't going to be drinking juice for awhile)

(I used 2 apples and one pear, and upped the water to about a half a cup)

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 3 minutes.  The fruit should be soft and tender, but do not overcook, or it will disintegrate.  Drain the liquid and set it aside in case you need it for thinning out the puree.  Place the fruit in a food processor and puree to the consistency that you desire and is appropriate for your child's age.  I left it a little thicker and chunkier for Isaac, since he's been eating solids for a few months now.  I also added a sprinkle of cinnamon to one of the batches, to see how Isaac would like it.  He liked it a lot!  I was nervous, because some kids/people have been known to have severe allergic reactions to cinnamon.  Luckily, Isaac didn't seem to have any kind of adverse reaction.
