Applesauce

Applesauce K loves his applesauce, so I make it. Come to think of it, I tend to make a lot of stuff that the boys loves. Best way to actually ensure they eat their food, right?

This is one of the best ways to get K to have some apples. He doesn't tend to like them much when you slice them up. Picky little boy, eh?

You can totally make this as one of baby's first foods by removing the salt, cinnamon and lemon juice.


Applesauce
(makes ~2 cups)

Ingredients:
  • 8 medium apples, cored, peeled and cut into bite size chunks
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • A splash of water

Directions:
  1. Toss everything into a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and lower heat to simmer. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until apple chunks are soft to the touch.
  2. Use a stick blender to purée or transfer to a food processor to purée.
  3. Serve as a side to pork chops, with oatmeal, over pancakes, by itself, as an ingredient for other recipes, etc.
