If you ever have fruit that is on its way out – make baby food! The softer the fruit is, the easier it is to mash or puree.
Peaches are super easy to do… here’s how I did them:
Wash and cut your peaches in half, taking the pit out and tossing it in the trash. Pierce the skin of the peach with a fork.
There are a few different ways you can cook the peaches, depending on your preferred method or amount of time you have on hand:
Oven – Preheat to 400 degrees. In a baking dish, add a 1/2 inch of water and place the peaches in there with the skin side down. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until they are fork tender.
Stovetop – Place the peaches skin side down in a pot with a 1/2 inch of water. Bring the water to low boil and cover. Let steam for 10-15 minutes or until fork tender.
Microwave – In a microwave safe dish, add 1/2 inch of water and place the peaches skin side down. Cover the dish with saran wrap and microwave on high for 5 minutes.
After the peaches have cooled down enough, peel the skin off the flesh (it should come off easily!). Add the flesh to your blender and puree or mash with a fork. Transfer to a freezer tray to make storing your baby food easier!
You can freeze your food and store in a ziploc bag for about a month. Always make sure to label your bags! 🙂
