ABaby Food: Apple, Banana, and Strawberry Purée

This is a great way to use up the very last of the local strawberries, and make a start on using the apple harvest.  The purée freezes well and can be kept in the fridge for 2 days.

Method

1. Peel the apple and stew in a tiny amount of water.

2. After around 5 minutes, add the banana and strawberries. Be careful not to allow the mixture to boil dry, but don’t add too much water as it’ll become more soup-like than a purée.

3. Add a pinch of cinnamon for an autumnal flavour.

4. Once the fruit is all softened, remove from the hob and allow to cool.

5. Once cooled, blend with a hand blender until smooth and lump-free.

6. Put into baby portion sized pots so the purée is ready to be taken out at meal times.
