Veggie Baby Food: Pear and Apricot Puree

How pretty is this colour!

Back when baby veggie ate puree, (which went by fleetingly, to my surprise!), she loved this pear-and-apricot concoction. These days she's all about broccoli spears and whole nectarines, but I still make a puree now and then for dinners and things and when I've already changed her outfit 4 times and she's had two baths so damned if she's getting dirty again!

This one's terribly easy - peel, core and dice a pear or two and put in a saucepan with a little water. Add 3-6 (depends on amount of pear) finely-chopped dried apricots. Cook gently until all is soft. You can add a lid to help steam the apricot if you like. Puree in a processor.

And if you're funny about sulphur and dried fruit and whatever, feel free to substitute for fresh.

Yum :)


  1. The puree stage goes by so quickly doesn't it?

  2. oh man, SO fast! I was just getting into the swing of things!

  3. I shall keep this recipe for when MPS is old and senile... heh

  4. haha think how regular he'll be - no metamucil needed!

  5. True to my word - I just came back to your blog for this recipe and am going to try it out on my little monkey this weekend!
