An apple a day keeps the doctors away!

I hope that old saying is true! I'm not sure if Brock likes apples or not yet. He gagged with his first few bites of the applesauce that I made him, but ate the whole bowl when I mixed it with his cereal... so we'll see. Developing a palette is going to take lots of practice!

Anyway, here is how I made them:

1 gala apple (peeled & cored)
Cut into cubes
Steam
Puree
Serve


I think if I bought organic apples,it would have been fine to clean them and just steam them with the skins on. But since these weren't organic I peeled them.




So easy!! Eventually I think I'll add some cinnamon to it because it was soooo bland. But I don't plan on doing that for a while.

I also put a little piece of an apple into his fruit/veggie feeder thingie and got some great shots! He's so funny.

Have you tried mixing it with pureed peaches, blueberries or any other fruit? This will enhance the flavor and may go down better. Good luck to you!

No Beth I haven't. We're still introducing fruits/veggies one at a time. I'm hoping to do peaches in the next week or so, so then I'll be able to mix 2 together. I just want to be sure he doesn't have any food allergies. Thanks though! He actually will eat applesauce if its straight out of the fridge. He doesn't like it room temp.
