Mixed Fruit Jam Recipe

Here is something all of us love, kid or adult alike! Why deprieve the baby of it just cos he cant have sugar? So I make this truly yummy (trust me on this, we haven't bought jam in our house since months now!) and of course far healthier than jam easy to make recipe. It is sweet, it is an awesome side dish for bread or roti or just about anything as it makes baby eat more of the main dish and it is a one shot at getting all the 4 or 5 fruits for the day in :)

It also comes in handy on the days when Athyn wants to eat only biscuits (its a trend that occurs once a week or so :P) - at least some fruits go in along with the biscuits.

Method to make Mixed Fruit Jam 

1. Peel and cut an apple into small pieces.
2. Add papaya, mango, banana and whichever fruit you would like to add.
3. Bring in at least 3 to 4 pieces of musk melon (cantaloupe), this ensures the sugary and sticky jam-like feel.
4. Steam for 20 minutes or pressure cook for 3 whistles 
5. Hand mash very finely or just give a quick blend

I have used more of mangoes as I love the taste of it with mangoes, Try to use really sweet fruits, check for sweetness before you add them. This works as a great evening snack in itself if the baby is 6 or 7 months. You can dip butter toasted bread or roti in it for older babies. You can also simply add it to the baby's rice / wheat cereal too!

Excuse the bad pictures, its impossible to dress up the food and click when a hungry baby is pouncing at the plate :)
