Make Your Own: Applesauce

Well, it's that time again---fall is rapidly approaching and I am so looking forward to cool days, crisp apples, and dreamy cinnamon-flavored concoctions!

I love that this recipe is not drowning in sugar- perfect to give little ones!!!

This is a perfect first food for a little one. I’ve been making it for Kenya since he started eating solids, but for some reason I forgot to put my recipe on weelicious. Applesauce is THE baby food standard. Inexpensive, healthy, sweet and complementary to so many other fruits and 
vegetables, apples should be one of the stars in your babies diet.
Full of vitamin C and fiber, you can make sauce from almost any kind of apple you can find, although Fuji’s and Gala apples are especially sweet and 
delicious.
I add a touch of cinnamon just to give it a little zip, but you could easily leave it out. Why spend more money buying jarred when you can make this in minutes?!

Apple Sauce (6 Baby Servings)
2 Apples, peeled and chopped into large chunks
1/8 Tsp Cinnamon
1. Place apples in a steamer pot over boiling water.
2. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until fork tender.
3. Place apples and cinnamon in a food processor and puree until smooth.
4. Cool and serve.


Thanks, Weelicious!
