      Apple purée


      Suitable from around 6 months


      Cooking time: 15 minutes


      • 1 medium eating apple (soft apples will cook more quickly than crisp ones)
      • 4 tbsp water
      • 60-75ml of your baby’s usual milk, or cooled, boiled water


      1. Peel, core and cut the apple into small pieces.
      2. Cook in saucepan with 5 tbsp of water until bubbling. Stir, reduce heat and cover.
      3. Cook gently, stirring occasionally, for 10−15 mins.
      4. Once they’re soft, remove from the heat and cool slightly, then add 4−5 tbsp of the water or milk.
      5. Blend with a food processor or hand blender until smooth, adding extra liquid as desired.
