Celery Root and Apple Puree

This is super yummy and completely appropriate for intro. I had sort of forgotten about it because I couldn't do celery products then. I'm sure that most of you are fine with celery though :) This would also be good with an onion added.

This is a great way to get broth and or fat into your kids. You could definitely experiment with other fats, if you can't tolerate dairy or are still on early intro. Try duck, goose, chicken or turkey. Let us know how it turns out.

Yield: approximately 3 servings


1 bulb celery root, peeled and cut into 2 inch cubes
2 tart apples, peeled and diced (roughly same size as celery root)
Chicken or turkey broth
3 Tbsp. ghee or butter (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste


Boil celery root and apple in enough broth to just cover. Cook until tender, about 30 minutes. When the celery root is nice and soft, puree the mixture with a handheld blender. Add ghee or butter, if desired. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir.
