The brown is just caused by oxidation. Same problem with bananas, apples, and avocados. Although it doesn't look too good, it is not harmful - luckily infants don't care what color their food is. My 4 year old refused has just gotten very conscious of foods with a little brown - my dd's were having sliced apples with almond butter to dip. They were taking their time and the slices started to brown and then she didn't want them.

As for making purees and keeping them for later. The health department/food safety guideline recommendations are that anything unrefrigerated more than 2 hours should not be eaten.

For infants, you want to be especially careful. It wouldn't hurt to keep it with a cold pac. Also, if you have frozen food, you could grab that and it would be thawed by the time you plan to use it and you don't have to worry about keeping it cold.
