The Babe had his first taste of Peach Puree in the 6 month range.
He likes them. And he especially likes the puree a tad chilled when those big, bad teeth are trying to poke through.
I used, I think, Coral Star and Glowing Star varieties. I am not sure that matters much, but they were yellow fleshed peaches. I hear the white fleshed ones are even sweeter, but these were what the local orchard had on hand. And I did purchase their seconds. I canned and made jam with what I didn't use for baby food.
I peeled all the peached, removed their seed, and diced them.Too peel them easily, just do like you would a tomato. Score the skin on one end, dip them in boiling water for a minute and then dunk them in cold water :) The skin should peel right off for you. Let me say, DO THIS! I don't know what I was thinking and peeled them all by hand, with a peeler. OY! What a project and what a mess!
Once you dice them, throw them into a pot and simmer them until they start to break apart, becoming soft and mushy. Once they have reached that stage, put them into your processor of choice; I believe for the peaches, I used my blender on the 'puree' speed.
Simply puree until smooth, then pour into whatever storage containers you are using.
I left a weeks worth in the fridge, and then threw the rest into the freezer. And now, baby can enjoy 'fresh' peaches way past peach season! But I assume we'll need to use them up while he is still in 'puree-mode'!
