  3. Twist the halves in opposite directions to separate.
  4. Remove the pits with your fingers or a spoon.
  5. Place the halves open side down in a glass baking dish.
  6. Add enough bottled water so that there is 1″ of water in the baking dish.
  7. Bake for 10 mins or until the skin starts to wrinkle, checking the water level to maintain the 1″ depth. Add more water if needed.
  8. Remove the apricots and place into Vitamix or blender of your choice.
  9. Add 2 ounces of the reserved water from the baking dish (it contains a lot of nutrients) and one scoop of formula OR 2 ounces of breast milk.

  11. Add more water or breast milk if puree is too thick.
