  • Vanilla Beans and Nutmeg: If you want to get all fancy, you can use fresh vanilla beans in this recipe. But you can also add in a pinch of cinnamon, cloves, or nutmeg for a tastier puree. I added a pinch of fresh vanilla bean and nutmeg into this puree because I was feeling it. I always like to add spices to my baby food purees, but you can omit them if you prefer.

  1. Prep: If you’re using fresh peaches, roughly peel, pit, and chop them.
  2. Cook: Place the peaches into a medium saucepan along with a little water, and cook for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Transfer: Let it cool slightly. Then, using a slotted spoon, transfer the peaches to a blender or food processor.
  4. Vanilla Bean: Using the back of a knife or spoon, scrape out all vanilla beans from the vanilla pod. Add them to the peaches.
  5. Blend: Turn on the blender and puree until smooth.
  6. Eat: Serve or freeze for another meal.


Babies can have peaches as one of their first foods. When a baby can start on solids is determined by their own rate of development, which generally comes between 4-6 months of age. Some of the developmental milestones babies need to reach in order to start solids include: if your baby has solid control of their head and neck, if your baby has doubled in weight, and if your baby is reaching for or opening their mouth when you eat (see my guide here). Before you start your baby on purees, you should consult with your pediatrician to make sure your child is developmentally ready.


You can store the puree in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. 


This puree can be frozen for up to 4 months.

  • Spoon puree into a freezer storage container (this is my favorite freezer storage container). Do not overfill. 
  • Place the lid on the storage container or cover with a piece of saran wrap, and label with the date and recipe name. 
  • Place the tray into the freezer and let it freeze completely — preferably overnight.  
  • Pop-out the baby food cubes and place them in a ziplock baggie or stasher bag. Don’t forget to relabel the baggie or stager bag for future reference.

Label Tip: Don’t forget to label your purees before you place them in the fridge or freezer with the name of the puree and the date you made it. Take it from me; by the end of the week, you will completely forget what is in your freezer and how long it’s been there… because you know… mommy brain. 😉


While Peach Baby Food is absolutely amazing and heavenly by itself, it’s also super easy to mix and match with other nutrient-dense baby food purees. For a Stage Two puree, give these fun flavor combos a try!

  • Apples
  • Carrots
  • Sweet Potato
  • Quinoa Baby Cereal
  • Chicken
  • Pear
  • Yogurt
  • Mango
  • Broccoli

Be a Foodie Role Model for Baby: This puree is great to eat alongside your baby right from the start. This peach puree is best served with yogurt for a yummy breakfast or snack for both you (I like to add some chopped nuts and granola to mine) and your baby.

  • Use a Slotted Spoon: When transferring peaches from the saucepan to the blender, make sure to use a slotted spoon so you don’t add too much water to the puree.
  • Organic: Peaches are on the EWG Dirty Dozen list, so I recommend using organic peaches if possible. The good news is that organic frozen peaches are generally less than a dollar more per recipe, making this option a little more budget-friendly.

Peach puree for the winter is a very tasty preparation, both in the form of a dessert and as a baby food. The main thing is to follow all the rules for the preparation and sterilization of storage containers, then such a delicacy will delight you with its delicate and rich taste for as long as possible.

How to make peach puree for the winter. Fruit puree for children

My daughter will be 2 years old in a month. Until that time, she had not yet tried sugar, sweets, waffles and other store-bought goodies (except maybe a couple of times quite by accident 😉). Even during pregnancy, I decided, if possible, to postpone the process of eating the generally accepted children's treats by my child, and I still adhere to this rule. But this does not mean that my child does not know what sweets are. Firstly, we have an apiary, and she eats homemade honey. Little by little I add honey to porridge and tea. Not always, only when she asks. She doesn't ask often. And I also close baby fruit puree for her for the winter. - absolutely without any additives, including without sugar (step-by-step photo-cooking recipe). They taste like mashed potatoes in mayonnaise jars from my childhood, so sometimes I can open a jar for myself and enjoy my childhood :).

Peel and pit apples, put in an enamel saucepan, pour a little water and simmer for just a few minutes to make the apples soft. Wait until cool and rub through a fine sieve (or beat in a blender). Then apple puree Bring to a boil, place in sterile jars and roll up.

Fruit puree for children: pear puree

Pear puree - made in the same way as applesauce. However, since pears are much sweeter and pear puree can turn out cloying, you need to add a little citric acid to it. And even better - mix pear puree with another, more acidic (apple, plum).

Fruit puree for children: peach puree

Peach puree - the most favorite treat for both the child and me. The cooking technique is the same: peel the peaches, stew for a couple of minutes (it will take less time than for apples), beat in a blender, bring to a boil and roll up. It turns out a very tasty baby fruit puree, moderately sweet and with a pleasant sourness.

Peaches should be used exclusively "our". About how to choose peaches correctly, what can be harmful and even dangerous in them - in the article "".

Fruit puree for children: plum puree (apricot)

Plum puree and we do too. Although it is not always possible to use it as an independent dish, because. usually it is more liquid and also sour. Sometimes I dilute it with water and make juice. Or I add it to pear or applesauce - for a change. It turns out a multivitamin puree.

Fruit puree for children: jar sterilization

I use small jars with twists, from baby food, mustard, etc. First, the question of sterilization of jars This size has me stumped. To sterilize them, I had to invent a simple device. In an ordinary preservation lid, I cut a hole suitable for a small jar. All. I put a jar sterilization lid on a pot of boiling water, close the opening with the "super tool" I made, and put the jar on top. I sterilize each jar for 5 minutes (or less - 2 minutes will be enough). I used to think that in preserves like juices and purees, sugar is the main preservative. Fortunately, this turned out not to be the case! We close about 10-12 jars of each puree every summer. Apple - a little more. This is quite enough until spring, because. in addition to baby fruit puree frozen berries lie in the freezer, which also go with a bang on cold winter evenings :).

Fruit puree for children: frozen puree

If you have a large freezer (a very useful thing, by the way) and the ability to freeze anything you want, then it's easier, faster and probably even more useful to make baby frozen fruit puree . All fruits and berries are the same. We just clean them of unnecessary things (peel and core of apples and pears, pits of peaches, apricots and plums, tails of strawberries), beat them fresh in a blender, put them in small bowls and voila! We put in the freezer. In winter, all that remains is to take out all this splendor, defrost at room temperature (not on the stove, not on the battery!) And feed the happy child with delicious!

Ksenia Poddubnaya

The most delicious blanks are hand-made blanks, do you agree with me? But in order for these blanks to be really very tasty, you need to know the most faithful and good recipes. And in this, as always, our grandmothers, mothers, good and experienced housewives help us.
Today I would be very happy to share with you the recipe for one piece of "experienced". I cook it very often, my mother and grandmother cooked it too. And the preparation is called - peach puree for the winter.
By the way, this preparation is perfect for a children's menu. Well, let's right now and start preparing this blank.
Peach puree is used in the preparation of marmalade, sauce and other preserves. To prepare peach puree, we need to choose ripe, undamaged fruits.

- peaches,
- water.

Wash the selected peaches in cold running water. Let the water drain. The skin of the peach must be removed, as it can give our puree a bitter taste.

To make the skin easy to remove, we need to place the peaches in a colander or sieve. Then lower it with peaches into boiling water for about 40 - 60 seconds, then immediately into cold water.

Now it is not at all difficult for us to carefully peel the fruit.

Then cut the prepared peaches and remove the stones from them. Cut the pulp into small pieces.

After that, pour a layer of water about 2 cm into the bottom of the pan. Place the chopped peaches in it. We put on fire and boil the whole mass for about 10 minutes.

Then we grind the cooked mass in hot form through a fine sieve.

Now place the grated puree in a saucepan. Simmer over low heat for about 10-15 minutes more. We pack hot puree into prepared dry sterile jars. We fill the banks to the top. Seal them tightly and refrigerate. It is best to sterilize the jars beforehand to be sure, and do not forget to boil the lids for about 6 minutes.

After our blanks have cooled down, at least to room temperature, we need to send them to the pantry or basement. The ideal place to store peach puree is in a dark and cool place. Well, then our main task will be to save the blanks for the winter. And then it’s enough to enjoy this peach puree.
Bon appetit to you!

The best food, of course, is homemade. No matter how manufacturers assure that the products are completely safe, it is always calmer if the puree is prepared independently from those products that are collected personally. This is especially important for mothers of small children.

In our article, we will consider recipes for making delicious and healthy puree from fragrant and tender peaches.

Peach puree recipes

Peach puree for the winter

A distinctive feature is that they do not require long cooking. Therefore, if you do not need to preserve mashed potatoes for the winter, it is enough to boil fruit for 5-7 minutes.

But to preserve puree, you will have to prepare clean jars and sterilized lids, which will somewhat delay the process.

To make puree you need

5 ripe peaches,

1 st. water,

Sugar - to taste.

Place the peaches in a saucepan, then cover with hot water. Cook a little, no more than 7 minutes. Then take it out of the water and let it cool.

The pulp must be separated from the stones, chopped in any convenient way: rub through a sieve, scroll in a meat grinder or grind in a blender. Or you can just cut it smaller.

Then put it back into any suitable container and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes. To prevent the mixture from burning, you can add water, or put a container with chopped peaches in a saucepan with water - that is, cook in a water bath.

After that, you can pour the puree into jars, roll it up, turn it over, wrap it well with a warm blanket. Once the jars have cooled, you can transfer them to storage in a cool place.

If desired, mashed potatoes can be cooked not only in a saucepan. For these purposes, a slow cooker, convection oven or double boiler with the desired cooking mode is perfect.

Peach puree for babies

Peach puree is a favorite treat for children. In addition, it is very useful, because the composition of peaches includes minerals and vitamins necessary for the body. Therefore, this puree will be ideal for starting complementary foods. Fruit puree can be given to a child from 6 months to 40-50 years old. Do not buy fruits with damage and stains.

For 20 servings you will need:

Peaches - 10 pcs,

Peach puree for the winter

Peach blanks are ideal for making pies and cakes, as well as filling for sweet rolls. We suggest you prepare peach puree for the winter so that you can enjoy fragrant tropical fruit on cold evenings. You can store it in the freezer or roll it up in sterilized jars.

Frozen peach puree

Choose the most fragrant and sweet fruits. It is good if they are slightly soft when pressed - this is a sign of final ripeness. Rinse the peaches under running water and make shallow cross cuts on the surface of each.

To remove the skin, the fruit must be scalded. Do it as follows:

  1. Pour enough water into the pan so that it can completely cover the peaches (do not lower the fruits themselves yet).
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat.
  3. Plunge the peaches into boiling water for half a minute. Remove with a colander or ladle.
  4. Let cool slightly and peel off the skin, hooking it where the cuts were made. It will easily come off without damaging the flesh.

Peeled peaches cut in half and remove pits. Chop into small pieces and pass through a meat grinder or blender. If there are no kitchen appliances, transfer the pulp to a deep container and mash thoroughly with a fork (this can take a long time).

Divide the resulting puree into plastic containers and place in the freezer. Sugar can be omitted, as ripe peaches are quite sweet without it.

Frozen puree can be stored in the freezer for up to one year. It can be added to pies, smeared on bread, or simply eaten with a spoon. This is a great treat for little kids.

Peach puree in jars

For 10 peaches you will need 2 cups of water. You can also add sugar to taste.

  1. Wash the fruit, divide each peach into two wedges and remove the pits. It is not recommended to cook them together with the kernels, since during the heat treatment, carcinogenic substances can be released from the bone.
  2. Pour a measured amount of water into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low, add peach halves. As soon as the water boils again, boil for 5-7 minutes, then remove the fruits and let them cool slightly.
  4. Grind the softened pulp with a fork to a puree, add the required amount of sugar.
  5. Pour a little water into the bottom of the pot, transfer the puree and cook for another 20 minutes on the lowest heat. Thanks to the poured water, the pulp will not burn. You can do it differently - put a cup of mashed potatoes in a water bath and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When the peach puree is ready, divide it into sterilized jars and seal with lids. Cover with a warm blanket or blanket and leave it like that for several hours. When the jars have cooled, put them in a cool, dark place. You can store such puree for 8-10 months, depending on the room temperature.

In stores you can find a wide variety of baby food: multi-grain cereals, juices in outlandish packages and fruit purees mixed with cottage cheese. But, nevertheless, self-prepared meals for complementary foods are a guarantee of freshness, a combination of favorite products and, of course, mother's love, "packed" in each serving.

I offer you the perfect peach puree for the winter, which you can cook for your child at home. It will turn out sweet without a single gram of sugar!


  • peaches - 1 kg,
  • water - 50 ml.

In addition to peaches, you will need a container for the finished puree. The most convenient for this role is jars from factory-made baby purees with a capacity of 170-200 g. In addition to them, you will already have screw-on lids that can be used for home canning.

How many cans do you need? The calculation is simple: for each such jar, two peaches will go. So, if you have, for example, 8 peaches, prepare 4 jars with lids.

How to prepare peach puree for the winter for babies

First, you need to process the peaches properly. If you boil fruits together with the skin, then it will not be possible to ideally grind them into a puree: for this, you will first need to remove all the skins from the pan. In addition, because of them, the puree will be sour, and then you will have to add sugar. To avoid these inconveniences, remove the skins from the peaches with a knife at the initial stage of cooking. Then cut the fruit into 4 pieces.

Place the pieces in a saucepan. Add prepared drinking water, cover the vessel with a lid and put on a small fire.
