I’m posting this because of the colour!
Colour is an important consideration when it comes to food. Perhaps we have a child that ‘only’ likes beige foods. Even so, children are drawn to colours. Colours can make food look appealing, draw attention, and create an impression.
I was making an apple puree to go into the centre of the fruit bars I was cooking. I used apples with a brightly coloured skin and would normally peel them, but because they were going into the middle of the bars I was lazy.
Check out the result. Wow. No food colouring and yet so vibrant.
Obviously, there is a different textural feel leaving the skin in the puree, but for some children the trade-off could be worthwhile.
I can imagine so many fun ways to use this bright puree!!
