This was one day of work, though most of that time was waiting for the food to freeze so I could transfer to a freezer Ziploc and freeze the next batch of food. Not too shabby.
I have just a few tips for those who are new to making baby food.
- Puree the meats first, and puree them while they are cold, adding liquid as necessary. Once they are very smooth, add in your veggies and fruits and puree.
- Transfer to a container and chill the baby food before freezing, otherwise you get some nasty ice crystals.
- Start setting aside a portion of food from your family meals to puree for baby. As long as you don't go crazy with the salt, it is a very easy way to introduce a variety of foods to baby, and it is in a small enough batch that if they don't like it, you haven't wasted time, money and energy.
