So, now we need to talk about fruit. Truthfully I'll buy fruit-baby food a lot, because it isn't utterly repulsive. But this is still better. Basically I make applesauce (or pear sauce) and just add another fruit. In this case it is apple and mango. Other possibilities are strawberry, (any berry), watermelon, pineapple, plums, apricots, nectarines, peaches.........Slice and core (you could also peel) about 7 apples and put them in a stock pot with about 3/4" of water. Bring the water to a boil. While the pot with water and apples is heating up, cut up the other fruit (which is usually softer than the apple, and doesn't need to cook for as long). Once the water is boiling reduce heat, put lid on the pot and let simmer for 30-40 min. Add secondary fruit whenever it seems like a good time to you. You just want to make sure it's cooked through. After cooking, apples & mangos are very soft and look like this:
Move apples from stockpot to food processor or food mill with a slotted spoon. You will probably not need any of that extra water in the bottom of the pot, you're applesauce will be plenty runny without it. Blend to oblivion. (You're not supposed to add any sugar or cinnamon to baby food, but if you happen to be making this for yourself, because it's dang tasty, then season to taste).
Applesauce can safely keep in the freezer for 8 months. I tend to also keep some in the fridge, since Sir O eats it so fast and it's yummy served cold!
