Pureed Summer Fruits
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
3 pounds fresh plums, peaches, apricots, or nectarines
If your fruit is organically grown, then leave the skin on after a thorough rinse. If your fruit is not organically grown, peel the fruit. Cut the fruit into chunks, discarding the pits.
Put the fruit in a steamer basket in a large pot with 1" water. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and steam for 10 minutes or until the fruit is soft but not mushy.
Uncover and let the fruit cool slightly in the pot. In batches, puree the fruit in a blender or food processor to a consistency appropriate for your child.
Pour the fruit puree into storage containers or ice cube trays. Let cool completely before refrigerating or freezing. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.
