It's fall, and organic apples are 100% fresh and in-season. If you eat the peel, apples are a great source of fiber plus offer vitamin C and just 95 calories per whole apple, which makes a crunchy sweet apple the perfect low-calorie snack for a busy mama. Apples also make a great fresh fall snack for your baby if he's started solids, however, you're going to have to loose the peel (yup choking hazard). Homemade baby food really is as easy as pie and better than store-bought. Below is a delicious recipe for easy and healthy homemade organic baby applesauce. You can make baby food in a pot or your baby food maker. In fact, you could even make super simple baby applesauce by cooking, then simply mashing up your organic apples. But I digress. To make yummy organic applesauce you need...
- 2 pounds of organic apples. You can try mixing apple varieties to produce new subtle flavor differences if you like.
- 1 organic lemon (you won't be using the whole thing, so plan for another lemon dish as well).
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
- 1/2 cup water
