Apple Apricot Puree

I LOVE this simple puree because it works for the entire family.  You can use it for baby mixed with oatmeal in the morning or mixed with other purees throughout the day.  But why I love it so much is because it is so versatile and works for my toddler and myself as well!

This puree can be added to oatmeal, spread on toast, muffins, pancakes, waffles and more.  We especially love it on french toast with a drizzle of real maple syrup!

Make up a batch and store in the fridge in a glass jar, or freeze to use later.

Ingredients:

-4 Large apples (I use organic Gala)

-20 dried apricots

To make:

Peel apples and chop into pieces of the same size.  Add water to a pot with a steamer tray and steam the apples until soft but not mushy.

In another pot add your apricots with just enough water to cover them.  Bring to a boil and then simmer until soft.

Add the softened apples and apricots to your blender, reserving the cooking liquid.   Add roughly 3/4 cup (total) of the cooking water from either the apples or apricots or a mixture of both.  Blend until you get a nice consistency.  (You may have to stop the blender and move the fruit around and start again until it all gets blended).  You can also add more liquid if needed.

Put your puree in a glass jar and store in the fridge or you can freeze in individual containers for your baby for later.

Yum yum.
