Baby food is simple enough, but I was on the baby food diet and was in desperate need of yummy inspiration. I started making my own and put them into the empty jars I had. No extra liquid is needed, the fruit juices are enough.

  • Transfer apples and strawberries to a blender; pulse until smooth and mixture reaches a consistency similar to yogurt or applesauce.

Cook's Note:

I used Ambrosia apples in mine, but any kind can be used. Also, the apples can be peeled prior to microwaving, which is recommended if you're giving it to your baby. I chose not to for added texture.

I had to cook the apple longer to get it done. Next time I would dice the apple rather than cutting it in 8 sections. I did peel mine. This made good unsweetened applesauce for a baby...or for anyone. Read More
