1. Put mince, apple and kumara into a saucepan. Add water and bring slowly to the boil.
2.Simmer gently for about 45 minutes, stirring often, until reduced and thick but still moist.
3.Purée to a smooth consistency. You may find it useful to cook a larger batch of puréed meals, such as this one, then freeze in small portions to use later. Purées can be frozen in an ice cube tray. When solid, transfer to a plastic bag, seal and return to the freezer.
