  • 1 bag organic carrots
  • 1 bag organic sweet potatoes
  • 1 bag organic apples or whatever fruit or vegetables you'd like to use
  1. Peel whatever fruit and veggies you're using, chop them up and put them in a pot with just enough water to cover them. Cover with the lid and bring to a boil. Then lower heat and simmer until fruit and vegetables are soft enough to be pierced with a fork.
  2. Drain over a bowl to save the cooking liquid. Set aside liquid in case it's needed later.
  3. Dump each fruit or vegetable into a food processor one type at a time. Cover the top with a cloth instead of the lid (or follow your manufacturer's instructions for pureeing hot things). Start to puree. If mixture is too thick, add some of the reserved cooking liquid from that food to thin it. Use remaining liquid for soup, or discard.
  4. I like to use ice cube trays for individually freezing my homemade baby food purees. I find the amount is good for babies just starting out and I can mix and match food combinations as baby gets bigger. Fill the trays and freeze.
  5. After they're frozen you can pop all the cubes out and freeze them in individual bags. Ready for your little one to enjoy anytime! :)
