I love fresh apricots and when they’re perfectly ripe I can easily eat too many in one go.  They are finally cheap enough to buy a bag full and try them with George.  As a puree the apricots can be quite tart so your bub may prefer it mixed with yoghurt, other fruits such as pear, banana, mango or even paired with chicken. So many options really.

Tip: You don’t have to remove the skins or cook apricots if you don’t want to buy a really easy way to remove the skin from the apricots is to blanch them.  Just place the apricots in a large bowl of boiling water.  After 5-10 minutes transfer them into a bowl of cold water and the skin will peel away easily and the flesh is nice and tender for you to puree, removing the seed of course.  Alternatively you can steam them or bake them.

Nutrition Note:  Apricots are rich in beta-carotene and lycopene antioxidants important for protecting good health.
