When peaches are in season, there's nothing like sinking your teeth into a fresh, ripe one and letting the juices run down your chin. Luckily it's prime season for them now, so I was able to find some organic ones for Bradley. (I also included a recipe for frozen peaches, since for more than half of the year that will be your only option.) Even though the peaches were ripe, they still tasted a little bitter once they were pureed. I was worried that Bradley would be turned-off by the sour taste, but he gobbled them right up! Now I rotate mixing in apples, pears and peaches with his morning oatmeal, and he absolutely loves it. I think breakfast is his favorite meal, just like his mama :)
- 1 lb. fresh organic peaches
- OR 1 (10 oz.) bag frozen organic sliced peaches
If using frozen peaches: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the frozen peach slices and cook for 10 minutes, or until peaches are tender. Place the peaches in a food processor and process until smooth. No need to add water or milk since the consistency is very runny once pureed.
To serve: Allow to cool then serve to your baby with a spoon.
If saving for a later date, pour it into storage cups to freeze or refrigerate. You can refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze for 30 days. Make sure you label your peaches! Once you are ready to serve, heat the refrigerated or frozen peaches up in the microwave and allow to cool to just warmer than room temperature.
*Consult with your pediatrician before feeding your baby solid foods and to see what amount/type of food you should give your child.
