5 stars (1 rating)


  • 9 small apples or 6 medium apples peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • Place the apples, water and cinnamon into a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until the water starts to boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes or until apples are tender when pricked with a fork, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly.
  • Transfer all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree on high for 1-2 minutes or until the puree is completely smooth. If puree is too thick, you can add in addtional water in 1 tablespoon increments.


Age: 4 months and up
Yield: 18 ounces
Apple Tip: I find that sweet apples work the best for baby food purees. I love to use fuji, gala, honey crisp or jonagold apples.
Peeling Tip: For stage 1 beginner purees, I would recommend to peel the apples. But once your baby has mastered the apples you can totally skip the peeling step if you are using organic produce. 
Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months (this and this are my favorite freezer storage containers).
