Last night on my way home I stopped at the local produce market and picked out some basic fruits and vegetables that seemed like they would make good “first tastes” for the baby. I picked out pears, bananas, carrots and parsnips. The moment I arrived home from work I got started.
I decided to start with the pears and while they were cooking I chopped up the parsnips. Pears in, pears out, pears blended and jarred up. Next went the parsnips. In case you have no idea parsnips look like BIG white carrots, the problem is that after you steam and blend them they taste absolutely disgusting. A whole batch of parsnips made their way to the garbage can. I followed up that tragedy with carrots and then a carrot and apple mixture which was actually really delicious.
No salt. No sugar. No preservatives. No funny business.
Just homemade baby food.
