Holiday Oatmeal Fruit Compote

The delicious aroma this recipe develops during cooking screams “holiday.” If you’re like me, the smell of simmering oats, cinnamon and sweet fruits bring back wonderful memories. Baby will love you for starting this holiday tradition any time of year.

Makes 4 cups (8 – ½ cup servings)
  1. In a medium saucepan, place figs, apricots, cranberries and water. Bring to a gently boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat to low, add Baby Gourmet puree and cover for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in oatmeal and cinnamon. Cover pot and let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Add water in 1 tbsp. increments if a smoother texture is desired.
  4. Be sure to use organic, unsweetened dried fruit when possible, especially with apricots that are conventionally treated with sulphites.

When I decided I was going to make all of my daughter’s baby food, I read everything I could on the topic – how to introduce foods to baby, the best ways to prepare them for texture, and which foods to introduce when. But the real learning came from old-fashioned trial and error. After years of cooking for my kids and running my own baby food company, I’d like to share some of my tips for making baby food.
