Baby Food- Vegetables

Maria and I have been busy cooking away for our little ones. We decided to make babyfood together. So far we have made acorn squash, yams, carrots, and peas. I’ve already blogged about making acorn squash. But I want to keep updating the babyfood process so that I have a record for later.

Yams- We bought 8 yams, peeled, and cut them into 2 inch chunks. Steamed them in a pan of water for 30 minutes at 350. Then we threw them in the blender with water from the pan and pureed them. Our 8 yams made 150 ice cube servings.

Carrots- We bought two 2 pound bags of large carrots. We peeled them and chopped them into smaller pieces. Boiled them in a saucepan for about 15-20 minutes. Then we put them into the blender and pureed them. The two bags made 91 ice cube servings.

Peas- We bought four 1 pound bags of frozen peas. We boiled them in a saucepan for 15-20 minutes. Then we put them in the blender and pureed them. The four bags made 96 ice cube servings.

Our next plan is to make green beans.
