How to Make Baby Food: Apples and Pears


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.

  1. Ben’s first loves were vegetables. Only later did he take on apple without making a face. Peas, green beans, squash. And his favorite still is sweet potato.

    Nice process pics Kel! Add some cinnamon to the apples.
