Homemade Carrot Puree (baby food)

 

A guest post from the McDonald Family:

Our daughter Maggie is almost 5 months old now and she is beginning to eat baby food for the first time.  A few weeks ago she started on infant cereal but now she is trying new vegetables.  With all of the organic carrots we have been receiving in our Brewers Organics box the last few weeks, it presented the perfect opportunity to start making our own baby food.  It couldn’t be easier to make and you can make as much or as little as you would like.  We started with a smaller batch since we didn’t know how she was going to like carrots. Turns out she is a huge fan!

3.  Bring water to a boil and cook until the carrots are soft.
4. Place carrot chunks in a food processor or blender and puree.
5.  You may need to add a small amount of water to achieve the right consistency for your child.
6. Place in refrigerator and allow to cool.  With larger batches it is easy to place some in the freezer for future use.
