Whatever your impression of quirky, trendy eaters, put it aside. My friend forwarded me this recipe for applesauce - and it is FANTASTIC! It's raw, which means it is maintaining all of it nutritive value for you and your kiddos. (Also, it means that it's only good in your fridge for 3 -4 days. But, mm, mm, mm worth it!)
4 dates (softened in water)
Peel and core apples. Put all ingredients into blender. Puree. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon. 3-4 servings.
