1 medium apple and  1 medium pear, peeled, cored and chopped

2 tablespoons of water or unsweetened apple juice


Put the chopped fruit into a saucepan, add water or apple juice (if the pear you are using is ripe, you will not need the water or juice). Cover and cook over medium heat for about 6 minutes. Blend the fruit to a puree and serve to your baby lukewarm.
