3 cooking apples
1 egg yolk (for babies 6 months to 10 months, omit egg yolk and thicken with infant cereal)

1 teaspoon water or apple juice
Small pinch of ground cinnamon
Peel, core and dice the apple into small pieces. Add to the lemon juice and water and cook over medium heat in a small saucepan for 20 minutes or until soft.
