There is nothing quite like homemade applesauce....it's been a favorite in our house for over a year now....and it's SUPER easy to make!
When Hudson started eating purees, I made 95% of his food...and I'm so glad I did. It was worth the effort (which really is minimal) in my opinion. And even though I don't puree his food any more, I still make applesauce for him, because it's his absolute favorite!
This time around I used the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker to steam and puree the apples...and it couldn't have been easier! I really wish I had this when I was making Hudson's food...it would have made everything 10 times easier. If you are thinking about making your own baby food I saw go for it! The time it takes is minimal and the Cuisinart makes it super simple. I used two organic apples, water, and a little bit of cinnamon for our applesauce.
First, peal and chop two apples and add in water (the recipe book will tell you how much to add). And the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker did the rest.
It steamed the apples for about 20 minutes and then I switched it to chop to puree it all. I added a few pinches of cinnamon and that was it! You can add a little sugar if you need to, but I've never had too...the apples are naturally sweet!
The applesauce turns out so yummy every time! It's a staple in our house for sure.
And this little guy couldn't wait to try it out! We use these reusable pouches and love them.
See what I mean? Such a easy and healthy way to put a smile on my boy's face! Love it!
