Notes

Age: 6 months and up. For older toddlers and kids, spoon puree into reusable pouches and serve as a quick snack on-the-go.
Yield: roughly 25 ounces
Notes on Spinach: If this is your first time serving spinach to baby, I would recommend you start by adding 1 cup of packed spinach to this recipe and work your way up from there. 
Frozen Spinach: I haven't tried using frozen spinach in this recipe, but frozen spinach is packed down in the freezing process, so if you try it, I would start by adding 1/4-1/2 cup and adding more from there. You can add to the cooked apples, but let it simmer with the apples for 3-4 minutes before pureeing.
