While still avoiding added salt and excess sugar, you can begin incorporating fresh herbs or mild spices to baby food, watching carefully for adverse or allergic reactions.
Apples and Blueberries
3 medium-sized apples (Red or Golden Delicious)
½ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
½ cup water
Peel and chop apples into cubes (about a 1 inch), discarding the core. Place apples, blueberries and water in sauce pan; simmer on medium-low heat until apples are tender and blueberries burst open – approximately 10-12 minutes.
Once cooled, add all contents of pan (including liquid) to food processor. Puree until smooth. Add more water if necessary.
Dispense puree evenly into ice cube trays and freeze until solid.
½ cup water
Cut plums in half, removing pit. Place fruit flesh-side down into pan and add water. Simmer fruit on medium-low heat until thoroughly tender and skin peels easily from flesh – about 10-12 minutes. Once cool to the touch, remove skin.
After skin is removed, add fruit and liquid to a food processor and puree until completely smooth. Add more water if necessary.
