Baby Food 101

I cannot understand why anyone would buy baby food, it could not be easier to make. It requires not more advanced tools than a pot and some way to blend, a food processor, blender or food mill.

By making your own, you have endless variety and can make everything 100% organic, and there are no hidden ingredients. I make a bunch at a time and have them ready to go in the freezer, then can mix and match to create all different meals. This technique (if you can call it one) works with any fruit or vegetable. I like to leave the skin on, but you can remove it if you prefer.

We received a lot of pears last week in our fruit basket from Irv and Shelley's.

Core the fruit and skin if desired. Then add enough water to prevent it from sticking.

Cook until soft. Then puree or blend until smooth.

Then pour into an ice cube tray and freeze. Once frozen, remove from the tray and place in a plastic bag.
