To follow the delicious Acorn Squash baby food tutorial here is something a bit sweeter…nummy nectarine puree! It even comes out a pretty pink color! <3

Fresh organic nectarine

Nectarine Puree

  1. Wash nectarines thoroughly. Cut in half and take out pit
  2. Fill a baking dish with 1- 1 1/2″ of water. Place nectarines open side down in dish

    Nectarines: pitted, halved and in water. (put both facing down, this is just to demonstrate the procedure)

  3. bake in the oven at 400 degrees checking every 5 minutes or so until skin has wrinkled.

  4. Keep the water to add to the puree mixture as you blend in case it needs thinning.

  5. Peel skin off of fruit flesh. (this should be really easy to do if they have been baked long enough.

    Naked nectarine! ;)

  6. Put baked nectarine flesh into the food processor and blend until it is a smooth consistency. Because of the amount of juice in the nectarine you will find that it is thinner than squash and may not have to add any reserved water.
