The Stone Fruit Puree with Cinnamon and Star Anise is simmered on the stove top until tender so the spices can infuse the mixture. It is a great way to start introducing spices to your baby.
Both are delicious on there own, add to your porridge of a morning, or on top of your dessert.
Stone Fruit Puree with Cinnamon and Star Anise
- Use any stone fruit you like. I used approximately 4 cups of the following
- 1 Cinnamon stick
- 2 Star anise
Wash and remove all stones from fruit
Chop and add to the sausepan with the cinnamon stick, star anise & 1/2 cup of water (adjust water depending on fruit quantity used)
Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally until cooked. Roughly 15 minutes for extra soft fruit. If your baby is used to lumps then cook for approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Add extra water if needed.
Once cooked discard cinnamon stick and star anise and serve
For a smoother consistency add to blender and puree
Freeze remaining mixture
This puree is quite tart. Try adding some apple or a banana to add a little sweetness without using sugar.
For babies over 12 months add a couple of tablespoons of honey.
