Baby Food Entry #1 - Carrots
I have decided to make my own baby food. A few friends have done it and said how easy it was and how much fun they had doing it. So I decided to give it a whirl. I made my first batch yesterday... K's first food will be carrots! I really enjoyed cooking for her.
- Cut carrots up into slivers. (I used 'baby' carrots)
- Put them into a pan with just a little bit of water and cook/steam until they are very tender. Be sure to watch the water level while the carrots are cooking or you will burn them like I did the first batch!
- Save any of the leftover water they were cooked in.
- Put cooked carrots into blender and puree until smooth. Adding cooking water (if needed) to thin.

K got to try it this afternoon, she wasn't so sure at first but I think she'll enjoy it more once she gets used to the idea. Here's some pictures of our first try!
