APRICOT BABY FOOD RECIPE: PICKING THE RIGHT FRUIT

You can make apricot puree using either fresh or frozen apricots. Fresh apricots are best during high summer months. When picking out a fruit, look for a deep yellow to orange shade. The outer skin should not have any blemishes, bruises, cuts, or worrisome visual abnormalities. When an apricot is ripe, it will give a little bit when squeezed. Be sure not to squeeze the fruit too hard, or it will bruise. Apricots that feel hard are not ripe. Apricots that are not ripe will be hard throughout, rather than sodt and juicy. An average sizer apricot will make approximately 4 ounces of puree, or approximately fill up 4 cubes in an ice cube tray. Take this into consideration when making the recipe. You may want to double or triple the recipe for a desired yield

There are two different types of vitamin A. The first type, preformed vitamin A, is found in meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. The second type, provitamin A, is found in fruits and vegetables. The most common type of provitamin A in foods and dietary supplements is beta-carotene.
