Baked Apples for Baby
Choose a firm, crunchy apple such as Gala, Fuji or Braeburn, splurge for organic, it's worth it, they have so much more flavor and apples are one of the "Dirty Dozen".
Core apples, leave the peel on
Place in a shallow baking pan with about an inch of water and bake @ 400'F for 30 minutes or until tender; add more water as needed.
Cool then peel.
Puree in Food Processor for about a minute, adding water by the 1/2 cup as needed until smooth. If your baby is older and enjoys finger foods you can skip pureeing it and dice up the cooked apple for a finger food snack.
This is my handy dandy KitchenAid food processor, it's a 12-cup capacity and works so well! If you avoid using one of these because of the clean-up, my tip is to rinse it out IMMEDIATELY while the puree is still fresh. This makes it a snap to come back later and wash in warm soapy water.
Freeze your puree in ice cube trays for easy storage and portioning.
