Over the years I have used the pureed fruits for home-made duck sauce, just jazzed it up with a little soy sauce or spicey oil. Any one else have baby food secret tips?

    probably not what you had in mind, but my mother used/uses baby apricots in her apricot jello mold for Easter (she's from the midwest - jello is a must-have at every occasion!) . . . .

      Use it for carrot cake instead of grated carrots.

          have you done this? and may I ask how? I have tried to find recipes for this sbustitution and haven't been able to. Do you sub cup for cup? I love the flavors of carrot cake, but hate the texture of the stringy bits. Sorry to hijack.

            Here are some recipes, if you have a recipe you like maybe you can figure out proportions from these.
