My first attempt was zucchini - that was super easy. Chopped it, steamed it and then ran it thru the food processor. Wyatt wasn't a huge fan, so I added a bit of applesauce and then it was a thumbs up from the little guy.
Last night I steamed green beans to go with our meal (frozen) and pureed the remaining for Wyatt.
Frozen in 1 ounce cubes and labeled - ready to go!
Today I made Peachapple sauce with a touch of cinnamon. John Wyatt and I went to the farmer's market this past Wednesday morning and of course everyone had peaches but you had to buy them in bulk, so I needed a way to use them. Wyatt hasn't been a fan of peaches in the past, but the store bought ones are slimy and soupy. I think he is going to like Mommy's new creation!
Peeled and sliced apples and peaches, simmering on the stove. I added a bit of cinnamon and the house smelled yummy!
I have just been using my food processor that we got as a wedding present 6+ years ago (and this is probably the first time it has been used). It is working great and I am really glad I didn't spend the money on a fancy baby-food machine. I am sure they are great and make things a bit easier, but other than an extra saucepan to cleanup, it is super easy already!
Two small apples and two small peaches made 9 oz of food. Wyatt eats about 3 oz of fruit every morning with his cereal, so that is 3 breakfasts. Not too shabby!
