It is Harvest time here in the Northeast,, and so, we have been canning, canning, and more canning..
and so today, I am going to give you a peek into another thing we do here...

Making Baby Food

There are many great reasons to make your own baby food...
Don't have time  - you say?

Honestly, if time was an issue , I wouldn't be doing this myslef.
1) It is economical - great SAVINGS!
2.) Better for your baby- you choose where you buy your food, what goes into your baby's food, and how it is preserved!
3.)Easily accessible- without a trip to the store!

So Join me,, and try this at home!
( Below are a few tips to remember)

1.) Choose the veggies/fruits you will want to feed your baby.
2.) Grab them at a local farmers market - preferably organic, but even a good source of produce from Supermarket works.
3.) Wash, skin, peel, and chop your produce.
4.) Steam until soft  - with no skins.
5.) Throw in blender, or food processor for a nice puree.
6.) Evenly scoop into Ice Cube trays and freeze over night.
7.) Remove into labeled bags- with a date of preparation.



Sweet Potatoes- You can bake these slowly until tender.  Tip for Sweet Potatoes -When mixing these,, they require a lot of water.  I used reversed osmosis water, but you can use distilled.  They will be thick otherwise.


Carrots just require water in pan, low heat, and soft tender touch.  I peeled mine and washed before.  Be careful not to burn while steaming.  These turn out amazing!








No the best or most attractive picture - but, it gives you the idea.  This is the fast part.


You might want to buy a quite a few extra ice cube trays at the store next time you are there.  I used quite a few, but they are super cheap, and super handy!


 WHALA!  The next morning - after spending the night in the freezer- Release from Trays, and put into labeled Ziploc Freezer Bags!


One Afternoon of healthy savings = Happy, Happy Baby!

Still wondering about the new news?  I will give you a hint on Friday!!
