    Default Frozen Fruit - for baby puree

    I want to make homemade baby food using frozen fruit.
    How would I prepare frozen blueberries, melon, cranberries etc to stock up my freezer with baby purees?

    SAme as above. I would just keep them frozen until you are ready to use. Boil your kettle and poor boiled water on them to defrost, then puree. Immersion blender does work, I have a magic bullet and that works well too.

    For the melon and blueberries, I would leave them whole and freeze them, then defrost and blend as is, no cooking or hot water. We've not had any problems with raw fruit here. Baby C's current favourite is mango. MMM...I just use an immersion blender on a few thawed cubes at a time. The bags of frozen fruit are great!

    I just picked up Blender Baby Food Book and I am very excited to start trying the recipes. With my first baby I only tried fresh vegetables, never thought to use frozen vegetables. I have been stocking up on the frozen fruit when it is on sale, so I will be ready.
