Apple Pie Puree (Baby Food)

** Sorry it's been so long since I posted.... ;)

For those parents wanting to offer their babies (6mths+) something a little bit delicious ~ perhaps a dessert? ~ without sugary badness, this is for you!!

What you'll need:

3(ish) tbsp of Semolina
1/2 - 3/4 cup of milk (any kind - goat's, soy, cow's..)
1 tbsp apple puree
a hearty pinch (or sprinkle) of cinnamon

How to do what I did:

Cook the semolina on the stove top as per instructions on the packaging, using milk instead of water.  Once it's thickened, it's ready, so remove from heat and keep stirring.  If it's really thick and globby, add more milk, there's no hard and fast amounts here.  Once you're happy with the consistency (keeping in mind that adding the apple puree will make it a little runnier) add the apples and cinnamon.  Stir, and taste test.  If it needs more flavour, you could always add more of either apples/cinnamon, or both.  Serve slightly cooler.. and make sure you check the temp FIRST!

I know this isn't really a recipe so much as a great idea.. but I wanted to share, as it's a HIT with my wee man!

For GF and DF mamas, you could always add warm non-dairy milk to a heap of rice cereal until it's nice and thick, then add the apples and cinnamon.

As always, keep eating!
