A Note From Molly Adams
When I introduced my baby to solid foods I was excited and terrified all at once. What if he choked? What if he didn't like it? What if he had a bad reaction?
On the other hand, I couldn't wait to see his reaction to some of my favorite foods; perfectly ripe avocado, sweet summer peaches and tart mango.
One thing I was sure of, I wanted to make everything he ate at home. With a few simple tools, making homemade baby food couldn't be easier. I suggest investing in a high powdered blender like a vitamix and LOTS of BPA free ice cube trays. I make big batches of puree, freeze them in ice cube trays overnight, then transfer them to freezer safe plastic bags to store in the freezer from 1-2 months.
When I'm ready to serve the puree, I pop the cubes I need for the next day (usually one cube = one serving) in small mason jars with tight fitting lids and set them in the fridge to defrost overnight. To warm up the food right before serving, I place the jar in a hot water bath just to take the chill out.
