Preparation and Storage for Baby:
When cooled, puree the food in batches. Use a food processor to achieve a smooth texture and add water, formula, or breast milk as you continue to puree. You can also partially puree the apples and beets so that the food has some lumps and bumps to help baby make the transition to table foods.
Using a slotted spoon, remove some of the beets and then spoon out some of the apples; set aside to offer as a finger food meal or serve slightly mashed. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days for babies and up to 6 months in the freezer
For the Family:
Prior to reducing to a texture suitable for your baby, remove some of the beets and apples and set aside. Serve this mix as a delicious side dish or as a spread (add some minced garlic and lemon) on crostini or other crusty-type breads or even crackers too.
