I have used idly maker for steam cooking. You can use your idly pot too.

Pressure cooker can be used for the same purpose.Add some water to pressure cooker base and place the apple in a bowl and keep in the water.Close and cook without whistle.Apple will be steam cooked.

Choose non-hybrid and non-sour apples.

Always have a word with your doctor before introducing any new food to your baby.

This can be given to babies above 6+ months.
