Bananas and banana puree may be frozen. Using a bit of lemon juice will help to prevent the browning of a banana (and most other fruits) when freezing it. It is the citric acid or the ascorbic acid that aids in the preservation of fruits. The exposure to oxygen and the enzymes in a banana (and most other fruits) are what cause it to go from green to yellow, and then brown to black, as it ripens. A blackish or brownish banana is not necessarily rotten or bad.

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a shallow pot with a steamer basket insert. Add the pears to the steamer basket in the pot and then steam until soft and tender.

Prunes

Ingredients: Dried Prunes - any amount you desire - try 2 cups full

Directions: Soak dried prunes in warm water until they plump up or steam gently. Once plump and tender, toss into food processor or blender and begin to puree. Add liquid without sparing any. Prunes tend to become a pasty gluey consistency when pureed and the more water you add, the easier it is to puree to a texture your baby will tolerate.

Note: Prune puree, like apricot puree, will not freeze solid, but will freeze into slightly soft/slightly frozen cubes.

Prunes are great to help babies with constipation. Try this remedy for babies from 6 months old +.
