Baby Food Adventures – Applesauce

Applesauce Make Your Own Baby Food 1

Making Applesauce is really easy. I found a recipe that called for honey, cinnamon, and vanilla and could not make it because I am not yet ready to give my daughter spices. Also, we have been advised that honey is not allowed until she is at least a year old. I made it with just apples and water and tasted a bowl of it after it was made. It was delicious. The best applesauce I’ve ever had. I would definitely make this again and make it exactly the same way. I’m sure this is nothing new but this is how I made applesauce using my pressure cooker.

Here is what you need:

Approximately 6 cups of peeled and cut apples. Cut them all approximately the same size.
2 cups water
