Homemade Baby Food ~ Plum and Pineapple Purees
Two more super easy and tasty purees for your little one!!
For the plums, I pitted and diced them, after washing them off and scrubbing the skins gently. Those I pureed fresh / raw (add a little water or juice to thin if needed).
For the pineapple I diced and then steamed for about 10 minutes, and then pureed, adding a little of the cooking water to thin.
With the pineapple, I used about half of it and froze it as just a pineapple puree; the rest I froze still in chunks and added them to other mixtures to create a couple different fruit blends (it goes well with just about anything - apple, mango, banana, watermelon, peach, etc.)
Lindsey didn't particularly like either of these on their own, but they blended well with other mixtures. Pineapple Peach, Plum Peach, Pineapple Plum, etc. Be creative!
1 pineapple, outer skin peeled (make sure all "eyes" are removed), and cored
- Dice peeled and cored pineapple into chunks. Place a steamer insert into a large pot of water with about 1" of water in the bottom. Bring water to a boil. Add pineapple (just enough to fill the steamer basket), cover with a lid, and steam for approximately 10 minutes, or until tender.
- Add to blender, add enough cooking liquid to thin as necessary and blend until desired consistency is reached.
5 - 6 ripe plums, gently scrubbed
- Cut in half, remove pits. Dice into small chunks and add to blender.
- Puree, adding water or juice as needed and blend until desired consistency is reached.
