Just made a batch for my 6 month old and he wolfed it down. Half a celeriac weighed a little over 300g, so I used 3 carrots and apples. Didn't have steamer handy so put in a lidded Pyrex bowl and microwaved for 9 mins then blitzed it with a blender. I didn't use the splash of milk as, with the liquid that came out of the veg, I didn't find it needed it. It tasted good to me and as I say baby enjoyed it too. Made a big batch - now have to work out where to fit it all in the freezer!

I’m really confused, the baby weaning article by your expert says not to purée in fruit with vegetables to sweeten their taste? Then it leads to this recipe???
