Apple and Raspberry Puree May 05 2014, 0 Comments

Another easy puree to make for your little ones. This is really delicious and the colour is fantastic.

2 large apples or 3 medium apples (choose a variety such as Pink Lady or Royal Gala as they are soft and not too tart)

10-15 Raspberries

70ml water

Peel the apples and chop them up into small slices. Place them in a pan with the water.

Bring the pan to the boil and simmer for 5-6 minutes with the lid on.  Stir several times to ensure that all of the apple pieces soften.  Once the apple slices have softened add everything into the blender or use a hand blender directly in the pan. Add the raspberries to the softened apples and blend until smooth.

This puree will have some pips in it. If your baby or child doesn't like this you can push the mixture through a seive to remove them. To save time and effort blend only a small amount of apple with the raspberries initially and seive this only. You can then add the smooth puree to the remaining apples for further blending.

leave the mixture to cool slightly before adding it to you pouches. The mixture will thicken up when cooled.  If it's too thick mix in a little more water.

The above ingredients will make approximately 2-3 pouches.
