Baby Food

I started making my own baby food simply because I love to cook!  I had no idea how much money I would end up saving us as well.  I know that baby food seems like a rather inexpensive purchase and in the grand scheme of things it is; however, when I looked at the price of jarred food in comparison to how much I can make with very little fresh produce I was amazed.  I have already made 24 TBSP of peaches and 36 TBSP of plums which is about 15 jars worth of food – and squash, nectarines, pears, and carrots are waiting to be pureed.  The recipe I follow is very simple – steam the food, puree it, freeze it in ice cube trays, transfer cubes to freezer safe storage.  Anyways, what I really wanted to share is that I had no idea that the ice cube trays I received as a baby shower gift would become so handy.  It also helps that for my wedding shower I received a steaming basket, food processor, and vacuum sealer – however, none of these pieces are essential to the food making process and could easily be substituted out.  Happy Food Making!
