Feeding our kids good and yummy food that they love is sometimes a difficult task. One winner in my toddlers liking is applesauce and luckily it is super easy to make at home.
I prefer organic food but sometimes it can get a little pricey so buying produce that is in season can help you stay in your budget and you are getting two uses from one product. With this purchase you can actually make applesauce AND good, no sugar added juice for your kiddos.
Take 3-4 pears and 3-4 apples and peel them. Cut the "meat" of the fruit of in large chunks and put them into a pot leaving the cores and stems to be thrown away. Next, fill the pot with enough water to cover the fruit and cook on the stove until the fruit is soft. To add a little extra taste, you can add a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon to the pot.
Once boiled, put the fruit in a blender and blend. Pour the remaining "water" which is now a healthy, all natural fruit sugar sweetened Pear-Apple Juice into a container and keep refrigerated. The Pear-Applesauce and Juice if just refridgerated I would suggest using within a week since there are no preservatives. But to save it longer, freeze half and thaw in the fridge when needed.
