1 cup sliced, peeled fresh organic apple
3 tablespoons water
pinch of cinnamon
Place apple, water, and cinnamon ( not necessary, but I thought it was an introduction to spices) in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, simmer 5 minutes, stirring several times to make sure the applesauce doesn't scorch. Take off heat and stir until the apples turn into applesauce. Cool, and feed as is, or mix with a few tablespoons or so of vanilla yogurt, or stir into baby rice cereal. Voila! Apple Snow.
PS: Once your child is a year old, you can add honey to the apple snow, but not before. Why? Read here.
Still very thin color here, but this area has very few sugar maples, which are the truly colorful trees. On my walk this morning I noticed the old antique apple tree finally has a few small apples, which the deer will eat once they fall to the ground. Beautiful light these days, and no need for a jacket - yet.
