Notes

Age: 6+ months
Yield: 8 ounces
Note on Kale: I find that baby kale is less intense for baby puree, but you can also use regular kale if you have it on hand. If using regular kale, for best results trim stem and stalk.
Note on Apples: I would recommend using organic apples as apples are on the dirty dozen list. 
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).
