Baked Apple and Apricot Purée

Baked Apple and Apricot Purée
This is a delicious purée to offer to your weaning baby. It can be used as a breakfast purée or a dessert, alongside some yoghurt for an older baby. It’s even great for Mum and Dad with some ice cream! 

4 Apples
8-12 Dried Apricots
1 large orange, zested and juiced

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Wash and core the apples, stuff 2-3 apricots into the hollow of the apple, and sprinkle with some orange zest. 

Place each of the apples on a square of tin foil, and add about 1 tbsp of juice from the orange into the middle of each apple.

Parcel the apples up and place on a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until soft. 

To serve to your baby, blend it down to your desired consistency, adding a little bit of water if needed. You can also add some plain yoghurt to the mixture and use as a dessert for an older baby.
