We had some carrots in the fridge so I started with those..I checked a couple on-line sites, go here(this great website is called www.wholesomebabyfood.com) to see some of those sites... and making baby food is really very simple to do.
Usually the directions go something like this...wash veggies, steam, puree, freeze and use!
PS here is a great reference from wholesomebabyfood that lists veggies and fruits that freeze and don't freeze well.
The trick with carrots, is to NOT use the water that you steam the carrots in, to thin out the baby food, make sure you use new water for that.
so, let's get started...
step by step...
1.Wash and chop up your carrots, I did about six large carrots.
2.Steam the carrots on the stove or microwave, till tender.3.Pour off the water that the carrots were cooked in, toss the steamed carrots and fresh water in blender, puree till smooth.
4. Pour smooth carrot puree into ice cube trays and freeze.
5.Final result...frozen carrot cubes in baggie...ready to enjoy :)
Our lil one started with half an carrot cube at a time, then use more as needed. I simply thaw or microwave desired amount and then serve cold or slightly warm.
'the proof is in the pudding'...well carrots...
