After feeding our twins organic bottled baby food I decided I’d simply make my own. I buy organic veggies, bake or steam and smash. Place in container, label and store. It’s easy, quick, and oh so healthy for those little tummies! The first attempt was sweet potatoes, here goes nothing!
- 1-2 organic sweet potatoes
- Food processor
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash your potato, with a fork poke a few holes then wrap in foil. Place potatoes on a baking sheet and into the oven.
Let the potatoes bake for 30-60 minutes (time varies based on size and quantity). Once done, allow to cool. Remove skin from potatoes and place into food processor, blend to desired consistency.
Store in airtight containers, I’m using the OXO tot containers, which I love! They were $9.99 for 6, 2.5oz containers. This food will keep for 3 days in the fridge or you can freeze for a longer time.
Side Note: I purchased the food processor as an impulse buy at the Del Mar Fair a couple years ago, I used it once before now. It so far has been the BEST $10 I’ve ever spent. There is not one fancy thing about it, but it gets the job done and best of all it’s manual therefore…NO NOISE! I can prep the food as the babes sleep. The OXO Tot blocks are so far my favorite, I also have the Sage Spoonfuls but the container feels flimsy compared to this one. I recently purchased labels in order to name/date the foods I prep.
