Baby Food

With my kids, none of them have really been happy with eating pre-prepared baby food. (I think I have mentioned this in an earlier post) I thought I would put up a post about my latest baby food production which Mercedes gives the not very messy thumbs up.

Apple, pear and banana puree
2 apples
2 pears
2 bananas
Teaspoon lemon juice
0.5 - 1 cup of water (how much water you use depends on the desired consistency)

  1. Peel and chop all fruit
  2. Place in a saucepan with water and lemon juice. Lemon juice is used to stop discolouring of the fruit
  3. Set fruit to simmer (with lid on) then go shower and forget about it for at least half an hour
  4. Take off the stove and allow to cool then blend till smooth
  5. Freeze in an ice cube tray
  6. Once frozen, the cubes can be put in a freezer bag or container so as to avoid freezer burn or drying out
  7. Use as many cubes as needed per meal. One cube would be an ideal size to start an infant off with. Cubes can be defrosted via the microwave (but don't ask me since I do not own or know how to use one) or in a bowl which is sitting in hot water. Best served at room temperature/slightly warm.
