***Please note, I did not include specific measurements, because you can make this in batches of the size of your choosing to freeze and store. There really is no exact science to it. For this batch, I used 1 Fuji apple, about a cup of diced butternut squash, a couple of pinches of cinnamon, and reserved liquid to reach the desired consistency.
Reserved Liquid from Steaming
Core and chop apple. I like to leave the skin on for the nutrients, but you can certainly peel it. Peel and dice butternut squash (if using fresh. For this batch I used frozen organic butternut squash). Place apple and squash into a steaming basket over a pot of water. I used our Beaba, which I received as a baby shower gift when I had Max, but this is not a necessity. Boil and steam until both the apple and the squash are tender when poked with a fork. Transfer the contents of the steamer basket into either a food processor or a large bowl (if you have an immersion blender or hand masher). Add a pinch or 2 of cinnamon. Puree food, adding reserved liquid until the desired consistency is achieved for your baby.
This recipe can be stored in tupperware and eaten within a few days, or it can be portioned into an ice cube tray and frozen so that it will last a few months.
