Apple Sauce

This is a perfect first food for a little one. I've been making it for Kenya since he started eating solids, but for some reason I forgot to put my recipe on weelicious. Applesauce is THE baby food standard. Inexpensive, healthy, sweet and complementary to so many other fruits and 
vegetables, apples should be one of the stars in your babies diet.

Full of vitamin C and fiber, you can make sauce from almost any kind of apple you can find, although Fuji's and Gala apples are especially sweet and 

I add a touch of cinnamon just to give it a little zip, but you could easily leave it out. Why spend more money buying jarred when you can make this in minutes?!

We used these to make this recipe: Cuisinart DLC-2 Mini Prep Plus Food Processor

      From what I have read, most pediatricians advise that you can introduce herbs and spices to baby around 8 months.

      Most pediatricians recommend waiting until about 8 months to introduce herbs and spices to babies! Whatever age you choose to do so, if they're new to solids then you should follow the \"3-4 day wait\" rule between introducing new foods!

    If you want to add other fruits to this applesauce like you buy in the squeeze pouches, do you have to cook them too? I'm thinking of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and pears.
