    Smile Lets talk about...SOLID FOOD!

    Good idea, Erika...I have tons and tons of questions about solid foods and it'd be really nice to have all the info in one spot

    Recipies:

    Baked Peaches (from Chelle)
    1. Halve the fruit, pit and place "open" side down in a pan filled with 1 inch of water. **here is where I added a little cinnamon
    2. Bake at 400F until soft and tender and/or puckering of the skin appears.
    3. Peel skin from fruit and remove pits if you did not do so prior to baking (you may also leave the skin on your baked peaches - the skin may simply melt into the fruit.)
    4. Place fruit(s) into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing. **Mine didn't need any reserved water for thinning out.

    No Brown Apple sauce (from Amanda / Muddee)

    2 - Mackintosh
    1 - Red Delicious
    or
    3 - Apples (your favourite kind, bitter apples are not recommended till baby is older)

    Pot of water
    Bowl of lemon ice water. (I use a 1/4 of a lemon)

    Directions
    Put pot of water on stove at high heat. As water is getting to a boil cut apples in to quarters and remove seeds.

    Boil apples for 10 - 15 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.

    Remove apples from pot with a slotted spoon and put them in bowl with lemon ice water for 5 minutes or until cold enough to handle. Peel skin off with hands, it should come off easily.

    Toss flesh in a food processor or blender and blend until the consistency you would like. You can also strain this for a smoother consistency, for a lumpy sauce use a potato masher or fork.

    So far I have tried the following foods with Victor:

    Homemade fresh baked sweet potatoes - he LOVED
    Squashed up avocado - he LOVED
    Homemade baked apples - he was a little unsure of - think I need to add something to this to give it more sweetness.
    Smashed up banana - he LOVED
    and of course the oatmeal cereal which he also loves. I mix it up with breastmilk. If I am introducing a new food I add a little bit of that to the cereal as well.

    renzosmom, try sprinkling a little cinnamon. I know chelle mentioned sprinkling that with the peaches, I think it will work for apples too...?

    So far I have made:

    Baked sweet potatoes mashed, or pieces in a mesh feeder - he loves and we do too.
    Boiled apples (applesauce) - he loves, us too.
    Boiled and pureed pears - he likes.
    Mashed banana, also in a mesh feeder - he loves.
    Avacado mashed - he shuddered, did not like. I need to try again, I don't think it was ripe enough.
    Steamed and mashed garden sweet peas - he likes.
    Rice cereal - he doesn't like too much, but likes it in his bedtime bottle.
    Oatmeal cereal - he likes, but loves it with banana mashed in.

    All of these I mix a little formula to get a good consistency.

    I'm ready to get more ideas and try other things. It's been hot here and I don't like to fire up the stove too much yet. Definately want to bake some peaches, that sounds so yummy. I can't wait til later when we can mix more things together. Does anyone have other ideas for what would work good in a mesh feeder? He really digs that!

    I hadn't thought of adding cinnamon to the apples - good thought. Guess it's o.k. for babies to have??

    Also, I hadn't gotten a mesh feeder for Victor yet - but I am totally thinking I am going to go out and buy one now.

    I'll post here, but maybe you want cut and paste all of the recipes as they're posted in your first post, Erin. That way we won't have to dig through pages to
    find them?

    Baked Peaches
    1. Halve the fruit, pit and place "open" side down in a pan filled with 1 inch of water. **here is where I added a little cinnamon
    2. Bake at 400F until soft and tender and/or puckering of the skin appears.
    3. Peel skin from fruit and remove pits if you did not do so prior to baking (you may also leave the skin on your baked peaches - the skin may simply melt into the fruit.)

    From what I've read, it's a little early to add cinnamon. Not so much because of possible allergies, but rather causing digestive issues. That said I added it to my last batch of apples and to the baked peaches. K hasn't had any problems I've noticed.
