Apple Baby Food Recipe

Happy fall y'all! It's that time of year again when the leaves are changing the weather is getting colder, and we are getting ready to go to the fair. Of course we also have our Halloween costumes picked out and the fall decorations out as well. This is my favorite time of year.

Which makes no sense because I hated school, and starting school. Something about the crisp air and the Pennsylvania hills turning beautiful shades of oranges, reds, and pops of evergreens just makes me have the feels.

So my little one is gradually eating more and more solids. Her favorite is apples, and since it is fall I am happy about that. I plan on doing pumpkin, squash, and more sweet potatoes to round out her fall baby food menu.

I might do turkey for Thanksgiving but, I have never done meats before when making baby food so I am not sure I am going to be that adventurous.

In other news, her reflux seems to be getting better (fingers crossed) and we have not had any wheezing recently. Yay! Which is a miracle because my older daughter has a bad cold since school started up again. It's tough for daycare kids. Hopefully, by the time she actually is in school, she won't ever have to miss any. Ha!

Anyways, onto the recipe! I used Gala apples because they are sweet and are the cheapest at my grocery store. You can use any variety of sweet apple.

The greens tend to be tart. I use an apple cutter to cut my apples, mine is from pampered chef but you can find one at any supermarket or Walmart.

I also use baby apple juice like Gerber that is 100% juice without a ton of added sugar. The apples will be plenty sweet enough. As always if your baby food is too thin you can add rice cereal, or if it is too thick you can add more juice to the consistency you need.

I then freeze my baby food, it lasts longer and only takes 3 minutes on the defrost setting in my microwave for them to be ready to serve. When I plan on being out for the day I do it less time and let it thaw out on its own.

Or if you know ahead of time what you will be serving you can put it in the fridge over night. This is also a great way to make combinations of foods, such as for my fall menu I will be mixing together an apple with a pumpkin or squash and sweet potato. 

Stay tuned for more fall favorites and a fall baby food menu!
