Lucy (my granddaughter) has some allergy issues, and seems to do best with baby foods that have nothing added—no citric acid or ascorbic acid or whatever else they add to those little jars. They do make baby food that is just the fruit or vegetable, but those are kind of expensive.
So, I thought I would try something new: homemade baby food!
It’s really not hard, but there is a learning curve. I am watching YouTube videos and reading blogs, but if you have made baby food yourself and can share your best tips or recipes, I would sincerely appreciate it.
These are some photos from my first batch, and a few lessons I’ve already learned:
- Keep a close watch on the water level in the steamer.
- One apple makes one-half cup of applesauce.
- It’s better to make one variety at a time.
I really hope Lucy likes it!
P.S. The cute labels are from her Great-Grams. ❤
