The key to good applesauce, a wise auntie once told me, is lots of different apples. The key to a healthy diet, a wise macrobiotic chef told me, is variety variety variety. This yummy and easy to make kale applesauce does both.
7-10 Apples of all kinds. Buy organic. Its better for baby and the environment. If you're feelin' kind crazy - add a pear or two!
Peal ½ the apples and cube. Leave the skin on the rest for fiber’s-sake.
Cover apples with water. Boil in sauce pan until soft. As apples cook, you might need to add more water.
WHEN APPLES ARE SOFT, turn heat off and add 10 leaves of stemmed kale (to remove the stems, just rip leaves off).
Turn off Heat.
Mix in kale. Cover until wilted.
Put in blender and blend for 3 minutes.
Freeze in ice cube trays and add to all smoothies, yogurt, and oatmeal. Add water to make popsicles.
