Overview

Making your baby's own food will give you the peace of mind knowing exactly what you are feeding your child. Apples can easily be made into baby food, especially if you use a blender. When making the baby food with apples, use one small apple so you won't need to store any extra baby food and risk spoilage.

Step 1

Wash your cooking area and sanitize all of the utensils you will be using.

Step 2

Cut the apple in half, remove the core and all seeds. In later steps you will puree the apple. You don't want to accidentally allow any apple seeds to make their way into the blender as they are toxic.

Step 3

Peel the apple and cut into small, evenly sized pieces.

Step 4

Steam the apples or cook in a pan with a little water until the apples are tender. A fork should be able to easily push into the apple.

Step 5

Put the cooked apple pieces into a blender and process until smooth like applesauce. Thin the sauce with a little water that was used to cook the apples. Allow to cool before serving.
