Several friends have emailed asking about the details of my baby food making so I thought I would turn my answer into a tutorial. I must say that I’m so not the cooking type. Sure, I can follow a recipe, but do I enjoy it? Usually not. Making baby food is different. I actually LIKE doing it. Really. Logan chills out in his high chair and enjoys watching me make batches of baby food once a week. Yup, I said BATCHES because this mama doesn’t have the time or desire to spend cooking away in the kitchen more than once a week. I promise, making your own baby food is super simple. Even someone who detests cooking can do it and actually enjoy it. Oh and stay tuned for my review and giveaway of the mumi & bubi freezer trays that were recently sent to me.
3 Acorn Squash or 2 Butternut Squash)
Large Baking Dish
Spatula (I use a long skinny spatula for spooning puree into the trays)
Food Processor (I have a 7 cup KitchenAid Food Processor)
Ice Cube Trays (I used the mumi & bubi freezer trays)
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. With a sharp knife, cut the acorn squash in half.
Step 2: Scoop out the seeds and glop using a spoon.
Step 3: Place the squash face down in the baking dish. Add an inch of water. Bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. (You can also steam the squash but that feels too much like cooking to me)
