Apples Peel, core and chop. Add 1 tablespoon water and cook, covered, on stovetop until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid. Purée with 1 to 2 tablespoons of reserved liquid; strain.
Beef Cook lean, grass-fed beef (preferably organic) until there is no trace of pink. Remove all bones, skin, connective tissue, gristle and fat. Chop, then purée, adding water until smooth.
Beets  Cover whole beets with water, bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat; simmer 30 to 60 minutes, or until tender when poked with a fork. Run under cool water and remove skin. Chop and purée. (Note: Do not feed beets to babies under 3 months old.)
Carrots Peel, then chop into ¼-inch chunks. Place in saucepan with 1 to 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until very tender, about 2 to 4 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid. Purée with a small amount of reserved liquid until smooth.
Small parsnips Peel and chop into ½-inch pieces. Cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer covered for 4 to 8 minutes or until very tender. Cool and drain, reserving liquid. Purée with enough reserved liquid to make a smooth, fluffy result.
Peaches For peeling ease, dip into boiling water for 1 minute, then run under cold water and peel. Pit and chop. Purée with a little water or unsweetened juice until smooth.
Pears Slice in half and remove core. With cut side down on a plate, microwave for 1 minute or until tender. Cool and drain, reserving liquid. Purée with a little reserved liquid until smooth. Get recipes for pear puree.
Plums Cut in half, remove pit and chop. Place in saucepan, add 1 tablespoon of water (if needed; juicy plums may not require it). Cover and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid. Purée with a little reserved liquid (if necessary) until smooth.
Sweet potatoes Prick skin, and bake at 350°F until very soft. Remove skin. Purée with 1 to 2 tablespoons breast milk or water. Get sweet potato puree recipes.
Turkey Roast a turkey breast in the oven, brown ground turkey or form ground turkey into patties. Cook until no pinkness remains. Remove all bones, skin, connective tissue, gristle and fat. Purée chopped cooked turkey, adding water as necessary until smooth.
