We decided to start Ivey on apples and pears today. I bought the best fresh local organic apples and pears I could find. I peeled them, removed the core and then cut the fruit into small chunks.
I placed all the cut apple and pears into a pot and added roughly two cups of water. I found it hard to tell how much water to add since the fruit were pretty ripe and therefore juicy. I brought the pot to a boil and cooked the fruit with the lid on until it was fork tender which only took a few minutes.
I then quickly blended it up with this great blender.
After Ivey and I had a nice helping we still had enough to fill four Fresh Baby trays – providing us plenty of leftovers for the coming weeks. I was surprised that Ivey didn’t go crazy for this. So far she seems to like vegetables over fruits.
