Veggie Baby Food - Cherry-Apple Puree

I can't get over how much I actually enjoy making food for the baby. Don't get me wrong, she still eats stuff out of a packet at times, but I'm really getting a kick out of making kid food.

Mind you, I find myself eating it too... this kind of puree in plain yogurt is good, as is putting it in the freezer on a hot day (I'm not telling you to add vodka...), and the apple purees and things are excellent on my morning oats! It's a win-win all round.

I always make batches of things on a Sunday afternoon when I'm pottering around the kitchen. It's nice to have something delicious and fragrant on the stove at that time of day.

2 sweet apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 handful fresh cherries, pitted.

1. If you don't have a cherry pitter, slice them around in half and twist to separate. Pull out the pit.

2. Set the apples in a small pan on medium-low heat with a little water. Cook until apples are soft, then throw in the cherries. Add more water if needed.

3. When all are soft (it won't take too much longer after you've added the cherries), process until smooth.

Very pretty stuff :)


  1. Very pretty :)
    I can't wait to get back into the baby food making stage.

  2. Looks so pretty, I want to make but I don't have a baby :-)

  3. Freezer... *cough*... vodka... *cough*
