Peach & Cherimoya Puree

I can't stop buying cherimoyas....wait, do you know what a cherimoya is? I didn't until recently and I'm so happy we found each other. A cherimoya is a fruit that Mark Twain called “the most delicious fruit known to man”. So, as I said, I can't stop buying them and wanting to mix them with every
 fruit to make purees for Kenya. I got one at the Santa Monica Farmers
 market yesterday that was so ripe and sweet, I couldn't resist buying it. Now
 that peaches are in season and finally starting to pop up again at the market, I feel like
 summer's bounty of fruit is finally here.
Cherimoyas are high in fiber, iron and niacin. Make sure to pick ones
 that are soft when you give them a light squeeze, a good sign that
 they're ripe. You can cut them into 6-8 pieces, pick out and throw
 away the big black seeds and then pull away the flesh from the skin
 which you can feed to your baby straight or puree.
Peaches are high in potassium, vitamin A and C. When they're soft and
 ripe there is nothing like it. I waited until the peaches were very ripe,
 peeled them and then pureed them with cherimoya. I'm not exaggerating
 when I tell you that Kenya ate the entire bowl of puree that I made
 for this recipe (do you get the sense my son eats everything?!)

    I will give it a try before giving it to my baby cause I think it’s a little bold combination. Just to make sure I am going to cook them before I puree and also to make sure that the nutrients are not lost in the process I am going to cook it in my MEC pure clay baby food maker. They are amazing and does a great job in my kitchen. I use it to prepare yogurt and rest of the recipes for her. most importantly its non-toxic, metal and chemical free. I got it from mecware.US (online)

    The Cherimoya is actually a native fruit to South America.

    Why is the peach in this puree not steamed but in a previous white peach puree recipe it is steamed first? I don’t know if I should steam my peaches before I puree them (I’m just making peach puree). Love your site!! Wish I could get the fruits you do!
